The reference to "Skipton or Shipton Street" would definitely be Skipton Street.  It has been known by that name since the very early mining era, as it was (and still is) the road to the town of Skipton, which is 51 kilometres south-west of Ballarat.

Re hotels, I believe that a quite detailed book on Ballarat hotels was published several years ago.  I presume copies would be available in the local library.

Hi,

I've been researching the Bute Hotel because my ancestor, Eliza Williams had the license in 1866. I've found a description that said it had two parlors, four bedrooms, a kitchen and out houses.

Was Elizabeth's first husband William Smith? If so, I think he assaulted Eliza Williams in 1865.
