The People

  • In 1862 the publican, Thomas Whatley was refused a license.[3]
  • In 1863 the publican was Thomas Whatley.[1] Whatley's license was cancelled in June 1863 after complaints by the police:
"Thomas Whatley, Market Square Hotel, Market Square. Inspector Kabat had objection to the applicant's character, not to the house. The applicant had obstructed the police in the execution of duty, and harbored bad characters. The applicant replied that he could clear his character, and provide sureties. Inspector Kabat thought it impossible. The applicant's daughter had denied to a constable who went to take him into custody, the presence in the house of a man who had stolen certain property in Ballarat, the girl knowing at the time the man was in the house, and it having been subsequently proved that he had been there at the time. The applicant denied the fact. Inspector Kabat said the thing was undeniable. Addressing the Bench - He did not wish to take away a man's bread, but he was bound to report such proceedings, and oppose the granting of the license. The police magistrate announced to the applicant that the Bench had resolved upon refusing to grant his application."[1]
