The land along The Terrace alignment of the house Sunny Brae was the site of Cadell’s Brewery which was operated by Thomas Cadell from 1844 to 1870. Following the demise of the brewing industry in Windsor, 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.
Obituary of Thomas Cadell of Windsor aged 69 years. Cadell was born in Scotland in 1787 and established a brewery on the southern bank of the Hawkesbury River in Windsor in about 1847 but was disused by the time of his death due to a downturn in business after the gold rush of the 1850s.
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.
