Biography:
Of uncertain, but probably German background, Vern arrived in Australia in the early 1850s and was soon working in Ballarat. Active in the diggers' agitation throughout the last months of 1854, Vern was known as one of the most aggressive speakers. His actions during the Stockade are uncertain: Carboni claimed he ran away. Despite being wanted, he was not tried for treason, and soon left Australia.
