History[edit | edit source]

In October 1873, a customer created difficulties at the hotel. One of the employees, who testified was Thomas Godwin, later a publican at the Ballarat Hotel in Barry's Reef:

Police Constable Irwin v, Walter Anderson. Drunk and disorderly, and resisting the constable in the execution of his duty. Constable Irwin said that, on the 25th, prisoner was drunk and very much excited; he violently resisted me, and bit my hand. Thos. Goodwin: Defendant came into Mrs. Paulson's on Tuesday evening; said he was hard up, asked if he could have tea. I said yes, at the proper time. He asked if he could stay; he said he would sleep on the billiard table. Yesterday he was violent, and wanted to fight with any person. He resisted the Police. Fined 10s. for first offence; for second offence £1 10s.; costs, 5s. ; or 10 days imprisonment. On Monday morning a good Samaritan paid the fine, the man offering to work it out.[2]

In December 1887, Paulson advertised her intention to renew the license:

I, MARY ANN PAULSON, of Barry's Reef, Blackwood, in the Colony of Victoria, the holder of a VICTUALLER'S LICENSE for "The Exchange Hotel," do hereby give notice that I desire to obtain, and will, at the sitting of the Licensing Court for the licensing Districts of Ballan North, South Ballan, Egerton, and Blackwood, to be holden at Ballan, on the 23rd day of December, 1887, apply for a Certificate authorising the renewal of my said license. Dated the Thirtieth day of November, One thousand Eight hundred and Eighty-seven. MARY ANN PAULSON[3]

At Barry's Reef the hotel license for the late Mrs. Polson's hotel has been surrendered, and the hotel closed.[4]
