History[edit | edit source]

John Hawley held the license for the Albion Hotel in Victoria Street, Ballarat.

In November 1870 he was arrested by the police outside the hotel:

John Blair Hawley, arrested on Friday evening at Ballarat East, was brought before Mr Gaunt at the Ballarat East Police-court on Saturday, for creating a disturbance, before the door of his hotel in Victoria street, and afterwards tearing the uniform of the constable who arrested him. It appeared that he had been found by the police in an attitude for fight, calling upon the bystanders to oppose him. A large crowd had gathered when the police made their appearance. Mr Gaunt imposed penalties on the prisoner to the amount of £2 5s, ordering imprisonment in default of payment.[1]
