In appreciation of Settler Thomas HARTLEY and his two wives; Hannah HOPKINS and Sarah GREEN née FIELD. By their descendants, Bathurst, 17to 19 July 1987.
Died at Bathurst on Wednesday the 22nd inst. in the 69th year of hisage, Mr.Thomas HARTLEY, well known to every inhabitant and generallyevery visitor of the British Settlement of Albany, as the Proprietorof the well known House of Accommodation in Bathurst THE PIG n WHISTLE
The Bathurst Inn, as the Pig n Whistle was originally known, was built by 1820 settler Thomas HARTLEY, a blacksmith from Nottinghamshire. In 1825 he built a house on Lot 8 next to his forge.The inn provided accommodation and provisions, along with a blacksmith and farrier service. From 1832 surgeon Ambrose CAMPBELL rode in fromGrahamstown and attended to patients on the first Saturday of every month. After Thomas's death in 1840 his widow, Sarah, took over the running of the inn and it became known as Widow Hartleys Inn. In 1849 Thomas BAINES made an oil painting of the inn and village. Later that year Sarah died and her son Thomas ran it for a short while, before selling in 1852 to another 1820 Settler, Jeremiah GOLDSWAIN.
During WWII it was renamed The Pig 'n Whistle by the pilots from the nearby 43 Air School. Part of the current kitchen walls include a portion of Thomas HARTLEYs original house.
Date of birth altered. He was baptised at Adlington.

It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Thomas:
