Timothy and Anastasia Hayes were involved in the 1854 Ballarat Riots (Eureka Rebellion). Timothy was a leader and organiser of the Ballarat Reform League. Disaffected miners attended the Monster Meetings arranged by the League, and mining licences were said to have been burned.
On 3 December 1954, Timothy Hayes was arrested near the Eureka Stockade after it had been stormed by British troops and Victoria Police. Anastasia hurried to the scene and scolded Lieutenant Thomas Richards: If I had been a man I would not have allowed myself to be taken by the likes of you.
In addition to the photographs of Timothy and Anastasia, there are photographs of their son Timothy Jnr and his wife, and the daughters of Timothy Jnr, Ellen and Frances.
