The Wellington Inn



Charles Douglas Haylock and wife arrived in Sydney from London via Hobart on the Wave in April 1832.

He purchased a town allotment in Paterson in February 1837 and was granted a publican's license for the Paterson Arms Inn in Sussex street Sydney in July 1837.

In May 1840 he was granted the license for an Inn in the township of Paterson under the sign of Wrattling Hall (1)

A publican's license was granted to Robert Murray for Wrattling Hall in June 1841(1)

In 1842 John Rawlins Burgis was granted a publican's license for the Wellington Inn. (1) Charles Haylock was the proprietor of the Wellington between the years 1843 and 1847 and then 1853 and 1854. 

He advertised his intention to close the Inn because of ill health on several occasion in the 1840's. In 1846 he advertised the Wellington for sale as he intended to return to England......

The Wellington was situated in the centre of the township of Paterson and commanded the most respectable business in the district. Mr. Haylock invited those desirous of purchasing the Inn to visit the premises as he was confident that personal inspection would be the best recommendation. Immediate possession would be given and the furniture and fixtures could be taken at a valuation. He was also selling a cottage with garden and outbuilding situated on the banks of the Hunter river at Raymond Terrace.

In September 1849 Edward Haylock (brother or son?) 'late of the Wellington Inn' thanked patrons for their support over the previous 12 months he had been at the Wellington aand announced that he had taken over the Farmers Glory at Hinton

Charles Haylock died at Exeter Cottage Waverley in March 1876.   His wife Ann Brewer Haylock died in April 1876
