Hugh Peck - Estate Agent & Money Lender

Description

Hugh Peck was from Cambridgeshire in England, and arrived on board the Great Britain in November 1852, the same voyage that brought, among others, Orlando Fenwick to Victoria. He had brought money with him and therefore was immediately able to open his own wholesale hay and corn store in Fitzroy, which was then regarded as being a long way from the city. In 1853 he wound up the hay and corn store and took up business as speculator, auctioneer, and house and land agent at 67 Little Collins Street. He later moved to offices over the Commercial Bank in Collins Street and then to his own premises in Queen Street.

In 1862, he issued tokens bearing the address 67 Collins Street East, but in 1863 and 1864 his listed address was 65 Little Collins Street East. In addition, he was listed as having a private residence in Richmond, and as the owner of the Richmond Hotel in Cremorne Street, Richmond. He died, aged 80 c.1904, survived by his wife, a son and five daughters. The two tokens struck for him were both manufactured by Thomas Stokes and were issued in 1862.
