Sidney Edward Dadswell's story

Carlyons Hotel, Melbourne

Note: The name 'Sidney' has sometimes been recorded as 'Sydney'.

Sidney Edward Dadswell, the third of six children of Stephen and Ellen (Pett) Dadswell, was born in Melbourne in 1885.

On 12 August 1913 at St Luke's Church, South Melbourne, he married Lily Robinson, daughter of Thomas and Eliza (Shaw) Robinson. The couple had two daughters, Joyce and Gwen.

For many years, Sidney Dadswell was an accountant and then his name became associated with Carlyons Hotel on the south-east corner of Bourke and Spencer Streets in Melbourne. In conjunction with Harold L. Fowler, Sidney Dadswell took over the licence of Carlyons on 1 June 1936. Fowler withdrew from the partnership in 1941 and Sidney's wife Lily, and Mrs Elizabeth M. Jackson entered the business with the hotel trading as Jacksons and Dadswells. This continued until Sidney died in 1947 when Lily assumed the family responsibility. In 1950 the hotel licence was transferred to others.

Sidney Dadswell died at Mornington, Victoria on 28 June 1947. Lily Dadswell died in 1964.
