Background[edit | edit source]

History[edit | edit source]

At the license hearing in June 1857, there were concerns raised about the location of the hotel:

John Wright, Hope and Anchor, Bakery Hill. Mr Taylor said that the applicant had neither stables nor kitchen. Mr Bier, Crown Bailiff, said the house was on the middle of the Melbourne Road, and would have to come down almost immediately. Refused. [5]

In June 1858 the license application hearing was postponed:

John Wright, Hope and Anchor, Bakery Hill Mr Randall supported the application. The Crown Lands Bailiff objected, as it was on the road. Postponed.[6]

John Wright, Hope and Anchor Hotel, Melbourne Road. Mr Randall supported the application. A memorial was presented by residents on the Melbourne Road setting forth that applicant's house was in the centre of the road and had no proper conveniences, the water-closet being right in front of the doors of residents on the line of road. Wherefore memorialists prayed that the license might be refused. J. T. Biers, agent for the Central Road Board, also suggested that as the house was on the main road the license, if granted, should be granted conditionally. The Western Bench had refused the license on account of his objection, but the license was afterwards granted as the Eastern Council obtained leave for the applicant to remain six months longer. The bench remarked that applicant had his license on the condition that he should remove his house, and he had not done so yet. Mr Randall replied that the applicant was perfectly willing to remove when told to do so. Mr Biers observed that the applicant had never yet been formally required to remove. The road was not yet proclaimed. The bench told the applicant they felt they would not be doing justice to the neighborhood if the license were granted. The conditional license implied an order to remove, and yet applicant had not done so; therefore the application was postponed till the 1st July, when, if the applicant had begun to remove the bench would be in a position to entertain the matter favorably, otherwise he must take the consequence. Mr Randall said there were tents in front of applicant's purchased ground, and he could not remove them. The chairman said it was most likely there would soon be power on Ballarat to clear those cross roads.[7]

At a license hearing in July 1858, the court was told that the hotel has been moved from the roadway:

John Wright, Hope ad Anchor Inn, Melbourne Road. Mr Walsh supported the application, stating that the house had been removed back.[2]
