The Ballarat Star 14thJuly1888 https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/209444552?
The enquiry into the death of Mrs Bollom, who on Saturday last committed suicide, was concluded yesterday by Mr Thomson, P. M., district coroner. Dr Morrison, on account of whose indisposition the enquiry had been adjourned, detailed the circumstances connected with his visiting the deceased and treating her for poisoning. He was of opinion that the deceased had taken the poison about three-quarters of an hour before he saw her, and consequently the remedial measures he adopted were inefficacious, the poison having taken too firm a hold of the system. To Dr Morrison deceased said she had taken the poison because people did not care for her, or what be came of her, and that she was a trouble to her friends. Tlie coroner returned a verdict “ that Julia Mary Bollom, on the 7th day of July, 1888, at Ballarat, died from the effects of poison, to wit, strychnine, administered by herself.”

Could this be Julia Mary's sister marrying at Geelong

At Geelong, December 24, 1858, by the Rev. Ingram Moody, Mr Frederick Glenister, of  Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, to Miss Martha Catterson, fourth daughter of W. M. Catterson,
of Kingston upon Hull, Yorkshire, England.

Not positive about this, but this looks like Julia arriving in Victoria

 
Julia M BERRY
Age 29
Arrival Date 6 Jun 1857

She was of York. A laundress.And accompanied by 3 girls, Elizabeth 7. Emily 5. Martha 3.
She was going to William CASTERTON (sic ?? CATTERTON??) of Spring Street,(..??can't read...?) Geelong.

As a matter of interest, noting the KIBBY name in CofL's findings, Julia Mary BOLLOM shares her burial location with Maxwell KIBBY who died in 1925 aged 3.

I would comment here that our OP suggests 1836 as a birthdate for the man.
However, looking at the age on records for Julia (nee CATTERTON) she seems to have been born in the 1820's
It seems just a little more likely he was born in that decade too, which would fit with the George BOLLIN above.

George BOLLIN may just be a different person but was the 'nearest' in name to Julia's husband.

So with Julia being a boarding house keeper at Ballarat I wondered if her husband might have been a publican?

TROVE has articles from the early 1860's that mention a George BOLLIN who had a publican's license and was a landlord at Daylesford.

Not your George BOLLOM.  This George BOLLIN with wife Alice are listed as shareholders in a gold mine in 1864.  And I bet he is the one at Daylesford.  The one BOLLIN on the early indexes.
