Biography:
Police trooper Henry Goodenough played an integral role in the events leading to the Eureka Stockade. Assigned as an agent provocateur he had infiltrated the stockade as a digger and attended all the meetings and apparently had urged the diggers to take a more aggressive approach in reaching their objectives. His reports on the diggers' activities were somewhat embellished and his role in the State Treason Trials meant that he was extensively used by the government as their most effective prosecution witness.
