Note : In 1863, the directory by Cobb gives a Benjamin Burton at the STEAM PACKET, Hall Quay. Other sources name Henry Savory at that house in 1863 and later. The 1863 directory by White gives B. Burton at the CAMBRIDGE TAVERN. By 1865 another Benjamin Burton is at the STEAM PACKET, North Quay.


First found as the CAMBRIDGE TAVERN in 1851.

In the magistrates court on Wednesday 27th July 1859, Benjamin Burton was charged by his servant, Louisa Tidman, with an assault. Whilst the information was being read, the defendant `fell down in a fit' and was obliged to be removed from court.
The following day he was again in court where it was heard that Burton accused the girl of neglecting her work and was accustomed to drinking with soldiers at the bar. She did not render a proper account of money she received and in his irritation he had struck her.
For Louisa Tidman, it was said that she was a very respectable girl of excellent character.
It was observed by one of the magistrates that `one of the policemen had been tampering with the girl, with a view of inducing her to withdraw the charge'.
Severely censured by the chairman, Burton was sentenced to one month's hard labour.
