Page history last edited by Robyn Lockwood 7 years, 11 months ago

THE JOLLY FARMER INN

OPERATED AS A LICENSED INN AS FOLLOWS;

1855-1857 PUBLICAN .......G. WELLS

1858-1859 “ “ .....T.H. ALLEN

2/4/1860 –early 1861 “.....JOHN PHILLIPS

When the Inn was de-licensed, it became the FIRST DISTRICT COUNCIL OFFICE

Mr. SIMEON RUSSELL BOSISTO from Cornwall, settled in Strathalbyn in 1860. A clock and watch-maker and CLERK OF THE DISTRICT COUNCIL, he worked and lived in the shop that was previously THE JOLLY FARMER INN .

He married CAROLINE GEORGE. He was Secretary of the Agricultural Society and the Rifle Club. He sold the land for Russell Street to the Council in 1864 for 20 pounds, though the road was likely well used before that.

Mr. Bosisto was in charge of book work. When a few townsmen were able to get a Corporation formed in 1868 , he was Clerk for both bodies.
