The land along The Terrace, Windsor, New South Wales below the house Sunny Brae on the southern bank of the hawkesbury River was the site of Cadell’s Brewery which was operated by Thomas Cadell from 1844 to 1870. Cadell was born in Scotland in 1787, died in Windsor in 1857 and was interred in the Windsor Presbyterian Cemetery.
Following the demise of the brewing industry in Windsor, the brewery was closed, apparently the citizens of the district preferred the brew imported from Sydney. The structure was damaged by frequent flooding and demolished in July 1899 with the building material being purchased by local builders, the Mullingers.
Read the obituary of Thomas Cadell from The Empire, 16 May 1857.
On the 4th instant, at his late residence, Cockenzie Bank, Windsor, after a painful and lingering illness, Thomas Cadell, Esq., in the 69th year of his age, deeply regretted by his afflicted family, and a large circle of friends.
Mullinger Bros have purchased the material of the old brewery below Sunny Brae. Windsor Brewery lost favour with Windsor folk and had to close - Windsor folk preferred the product from Sydney.
