Details: REDMAN S CORDIAL FACTORY was established by the proprietor, George Edward Redman, who was born in Somerset, England, in 1828, and, when nineteen years of age, emigrated to this colony. He followed farming pursuits in New England for about five years, and afterwards entered the service of David Jones and Co., of Sydney, with whom lie remained five years. Removing to Newcastle he served three and a half years hauling coal for the Coal and Copper Company, and had placed under his control as many as one hundred horses. Returning to Sydney he became for three years a Government carrying contractor, and at the end of that time took up a farm on his own account at Smithfield, where he remained two years. In 1862 he settled in Newcastle, and took the Bank Hotel in Hunter street, which he kept sixteen months. In 1865 he commenced business as a cordial manufacturer in a small factory in Blane -street, where he employed one man and a horse. So greatly did his business increase, however, that it was found necessary to re move to large premises in Newcomen -street, where Mr. Redman continued for twelve years. Again he changed, this time to premises in Wickham, which he still occupies. He now employs twenty-two men and twelve horses, besides renting a store in Wallsend, which he utilises as a depot for that district. The works are replete with modern machinery driven by steam. Besides owning this great factory, our subject is the proprietor of the Hunter River Hotel in East Maitland. Mr. Redman is marri ed, a member of Lodge Harmony S.C., and is the father of one son and three daughters
