Edwin Prebble was a publican in the Ballarat district, <1872-1878>.

History[edit | edit source]

In September 1872 Prebble was granted a conditional license for a new, unnamed hotel:

Edwin Prebble, for a new house at the corner of Park and Adair streets; granted, subject to certain requirements being complied with.[1]

In November 1873 his publican's license for the hotel, now called the Elephant and Castle, was renewed.[2]

In October 1875 he took over the license of the Cardiff Hotel in Grenville Street.[3] The license was renewed in December 1875.[4] In December 1876 he was transferring the license from the Prince of Wales Hotel in Humffray Street.[5] In December 1877, Prebble was the publican of the Royal Exchange Hotel in Buninyong.[6] In November 1878, he took over the license of the Robert Burns Hotel in Humffray Street, Ballarat.[7]

In February 1878, Prebble was charged with a number of breaches of the licensing laws:

Edwin Prebble, of the Royal Exchange hotel, was charged with supplying liquor to James Delany on the 19th January whilst in a state of intoxication; case dismissed. Thomas Connolly, of the Court-house hotel, was similarly charged; fined £2 and £2-2s,costs. Edwin Prebble was now charged with supplying James Delany with beer whilst in a state of intoxication on the 20th January; case dismissed. Edwin Prebble was then charged with suffering liquor to be drunk after hours by persons other than lodgers on the 29th January; fined £2 and 3s 6d costs.[8]
