Derek Whitelock "Gawler" p229 "Post and Telegraph - Robert Robertson, owner of the Old Bushman Hotel, brought the mail from Adelaide and distributed it to the first settlers. In 1843, Henry Calton of the Old Spot organised the mail run and his tavern acted as post office until a postmaster was appointed in 1849."

George E. Loyau "The Gawler Handbook" p15 "In 1846, when the town was only seven years old, a Lodge was opened in connection with the Manchester Unity of Oddfellows, and called the Loyal Gawler Lodge. This Lodge was opened at Host Calton's, at the Old Spot....was there until 1852, when it was removed to the Globe Inn, and afterwards to the Old Bushman."
