AUSTRALIAN GOLD 
Mr. S. McKie, of the Rainbow Tavern in this town, has this week 
received a nugget of gold ore from Australia, forwarded by a
 relative who is at the "diggings."The ore is 1lb 5 oz in weight, 
and is well-stored with precious metal, being valued at about £10.
Preston Chronicle  11th September 1852
There is no evidence that it is this 'Rainbow Tavern' but in the absence
of another one, I've put the information here.
ALSO - he doesn't have to be the landlord.
