History[edit | edit source]

In January 1870, Harriette Dodds was refused a license for the hotel:

Mrs Harriette Dodd, mother of Fannie White, well known as the late keeper of the Bush Inn, Ballarat East, applied last week to have the license of the Prince Alfred hotel, Grenville street, transferred into her name. Mr Gaunt would not decide upon the question himself, but held the decision over to be given by a bench of magistrates properly summoned under the act. The result has been, that objections as to the character of the applicant brought forward by the police have caused the refusal of the transfer.[2]

In February 1870, Phillip Schwambach advertised he wanted to his current license to this hotel:

APPLICATION for Transfer of Publican's License from one House to another. — I, PHILLIP SCHWAMBACH, the holder of a Publican's License for the house and premises known as the Sir Charles Darling Hotel, situate in Darling street, do hereby give notice that it is my intention to apply to the Justices sitting at the Court of Petty Sessions, to be holden at the Court at Ballarat on Tuesday, the 8th March, 1870, to transfer the said license to a house situate in Grenville street, and lately licensed as the Prince Alfred Hotel. Given under my hand this 18th of February, 1870. PHILLIP SCHWAMBACH.[3]
