Brighton News Story – 6 October, 1794: Prince purchases Pavilion

The Prince of Wales, we are informed, has lately purchased from Mr Weltjie, the pavilion, at Brighton.

From The Sussex Weekly Advertiser, 1794

Note: although the paper claimed that the purchase had been completed, it had in fact failed and Weltjie withdrew from the arrangement.  The Marine Pavilion was let to the Prince until he finally purchased it in 1808.
