Another thread from Rootsweb 2004:From: "Sue O'Neill" <sloneill@ledanet.com.au: You might want to check this site - it is only a trifling amount of the publicans - more so than hotels but you might find it interesting.

With regards to Creswick T W Anthony (Thomas William) was probably the first the publican for the American Hotel - he was from America. J W Burns - Prince of Wales Hotel - listed as publican in a birth notice in 1859 Carson - Creswick Hotel - 1859 advert in the paper Creati - Flying Bucks Hotel Davies or Davis (William) - Bridge Hotel Edwards, J - Criterion Fotheringham, William - hotel unknown Frost, George, Wattle Hotel - 1884-85 Harrison, R - Old House Inn Leake, Price - yep thats his first name, 1884-85 - hotel unknown Pascoe, James - Belle Vue Hotel Richards, Henry - 1884 - 1885 Roberts, Back Creek Hotel - 1859 Rosekilly, John, British Hotel Wellington, Wellington Hotel - 1859 Whatman, James - Prince of Wales Hotel - 1860
