I believe Isaac’s pubs were all located on George St Sydney not Parramatta. It seems he had The White Horse Cellar which was on the corner of George and Market Streets in Sydney - https://www.trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/12936622 and http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/12926958 - (this lines up with the information I found in the Sydney in 1848 publication http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks06/0600151h.html).  This site (http://www.ozhistorymine.com/html/sydney_1838.html) shows he had The George & Dragon and also references it as being in George St Sydney.  This article from the Sydney Morning Herald in 1845 references Isaac Titterton with the Talbot Inn on George St: http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/12880769 .  Additionally this site references an 1841 document and Isaac having the Talbot Inn on George St Sydney: http://www.ozhistorymine.com/html/sydney_1841.html .  I also found this article from 1840 regarding Isaac being robbed at gunpoint in 1838 and he is referred to as the operator of the stage coach and the landlord of the Talbot Inn on George St Sydney http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/2547684.
My best guess is that Isaac owned at least 3 pubs, all on George St Sydney:  The George and Dragon, The Talbot Inn and the White Horse Cellar Tavern - I haven’t been able to find proper evidence that any of his inns were located in Parramatta - and it seems to make sense that his pubs would be close to where he lived according to the Sydney in 1848 book.
A few other things I did find:
* I did find evidence that Isaac was a tenant in Parramatta: http://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=isaac titterton parramatta&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CC4QFjAA&url=http://www.caseyandlowe.com.au/pdf/leafletc.pdf&ei=rZm9UPSyA8ahiQeYyIGAAw&usg=AFQjCNGPf7JzqXrpJDIH5n3fWZCiA7Kjkg
* I found that Isaac had a part ownership of a coach service called The Great Southern Line: http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1302&dat=19210420&id=Zt9UAAAAIBAJ&sjid=LJIDAAAAIBAJ&pg=6966,3689266
* It appears Isaac became a land owner near Hartley in about 1830: http://www.megalongcc.com.au/Ambermere/hartley_history.htm
* This article shows his mail coach runs: http://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=isaac titterton parramatta&source=web&cd=60&ved=0CF0QFjAJODI&url=http://gazette.slv.vic.gov.au/images/1845/N/general/98.pdf&ei=_py9ULTIMs-ziQeNkYDYBg&usg=AFQjCNEvMwCUMkGu9qX9hw9eNcC-lIheug

Finally, Isaac appears to have been an alderman for the Macquarie Ward of Sydney Council: http://www.sydneyaldermen.com.au/alderman/isaac-titterton/

I hope this helps.

Isaac married Mary Hadley (daughter of convict Charles Hadley & his wife Sarah Phillips) on the 25th February 1830. They had 5 sons and 1 daughter.

By 1828, he was a shareholder in the Bank of NSW.
Isaac was a publican. He became the licensee of the White Horse Cellar in George Street, Sydney, in June 1834. From 1837 to 1839, he was the publican of the George and Dragon also in George Street. He became well known as the licensee of the Talbot Inn in George Street from 1839 to 1845. This hotel, also known as the Coach and Horses, was situated halfway between Bathurst and Wilmot streets and was the starting point for coaches to Windsor and the interior. In 1850, he had the White Horse Tavern in George Street.
Titterton had married into the Hadley family who already had connections with the coaching and inn business. In January 1844 he advertised his inn as the only booking office for the Bathurst Mail and in January 1845 he was selling seats on the Goulburn Mail. In October 1844 he and John Ireland were granted a coach license.
Isaac Titterton and John Ireland had the mail contracts between Sydney-Bathurst and Sydney-Goulburn. Titterton’s coaches ran along Parramatta Road using Neich’s Bath Arms Inn as their first changing station, and Ireland’s ran on Liverpool Road, staging at The Bark Huts where the Royal Hotel now stands.
Titterton was a wine and spirit merchant, and the starting point for both runs was his White Horse Cellars at the corner of Market and George Streets in Sydney.
It appears that Titterton was also involved with mail runs from Sydney to Campbelltown as well as from Brisbane to the Darling Downs.
In 1843 Titterton had advertised for sale 500 cattle on the Lachlan station and by October 1844 he was selling horses at Titterton’s Livery Stables.
In 1847 he also had wholesale general stores in Sydney.

Isaac Titterton was Alderman for Sydney City Macquarie Ward, from 1st November 1845 to 31st October 1849

Isaac died on 3rd September 1852 at the age of 51 in Sydney, and Mary died the following year at age 40
