I have a John Harrison born in 1852 Brighton Victoria. I have everything i need on his family so i dont need help with that but im trying to find some newspapers articles on him and im having trouble with it. Either im missing them or there isnt any:rolleyes:

Notes i have are

John was known at times as Jack. His mother died when he was 12 and his father sold him off as a servant to pay for gambling debts. The "master" beat Jack so bad and left him for dead on the Ballarat road. A family rescued him and also took him in. He worked with their horses and also won some races as a jockey at Ballarat. He also travelled to India accompanying horses that were been transported from Victoria to India for the Raj there.

Can someone else who has access to the papers check for me please incase im missing something.
Thanks
