Cadell, Robert – Sketch of Cockenzie House, Windsor, circa 1845 Framed in an original 19th century birds-eye maple frame.
Robert Cadell was Scottish, best known for being Sir Walter Scott’s publisher. His brother Thomas, however, came to Australia in 1834, and settled in Windsor, opening a successful brewery in 1844. This building no longer exists, but can be seen in an 1879 photograph. It appears to be an 1820’s building, which shows on an 1842 map, and was over the road from the 1815 Macquarie Arms, which still exists.
