New South Wales, Australia, Certificates for Publicans’ Licences, 1830-1849, 1853-1860

This is a collection of publicans’ licenses for public houses in New South Wales between 1830-1860. The collection includes butts of licenses that stretch from 1830-1849 and actual certificates from 1853-1860. The licenses gave different establishments the legal right to sell alcohol. Not all of the licenses were for alcohol, other uses included confectioners, billiard, night, and packet licenses, but the majority were for public houses or pubs. The licenses had to be paid for and allowed the establishments to “retail wines and malt and spirituous liquors.” for more click here
