Many of the publicans recorded on this list you will find recounted here on within the many journals of local historian itellya

Many, many of the hotels listed above are still doing business

One can see a lot of history through the bottom of a Pot, but one needs to do a pub crawl to learn these things.

If pub walls could talk ...

I hope they don't talk about me tonkin.
There has got to be more pubs than what's up there. What about Port Melbourne it was called Sandridge and there is only 1 hotel up there, What about the Exchange that opened in 1850. And South Melbourne (Emerald Hill) and Williamstown.
Wouldn't they have been under Melbourne Districts? what would they have come under? itellya?
I went on a pub crawl for a hen's night, there were 10 of us, back in 1980, in Brunswick St., and there were 23 pubs in that Street, Yes! I remember them all. Not all were old pubs but a lot of them were.
Any clues anyone?

I found this in RootsWeb Publican Index of 19th Century Victoria
It's not specific to 1856 but a good guide to publicans in general

actually it's a lot better than my amateur attempt

Intersting what you say about the old pubs Janilye.

Sandridge was a busy place in the early years and there must have been more than one watering hole. I had a family member with a pub there somewhere around 1890 I think, but I don't think the name of the pub was mentioned in the Will. Will have to find the Will and follow up.

Have you ever walked the Sandridge rail track along by the Yarra which goes from the City down to the bay.

Not all of it.
