In October 1856 a Mr. Tomlin sued a Mr. Lansley for wages involved in looking after the hotel:

Tomlin v. Lansley.-Mr Rainy for the plaintiff, and Mr Walsh for defendant This was a plaint entered to recover the sum of £12, alleged to be due for wages. It appeared that the defendant who was a sheriffs officer, had taken possession under a writ of Fi. Fa. of Mr Kemp's hotel, at Magpie Gully. Mr Kemp became insolvent, and Mr Lansley told the plaintiff to remain in the house and he would pay him his wages, which were £4 per week. He stayed in the house three weeks. The defendant was called, and denied most directly that he ever himself employed the plaintiff. Verdict for the plaintiff for £12.[1]
