A Brief History
Prior to the arrival of the First Fleet in Port Jackson in 1788, the area of land we now know as the Municipality of Ashfield was the home of the Wangal people. From 1794 onwards Europeans settled the area.
On February morning in 1788, two weeks after the arrival of Captain Phillip at Sydney Cove, Captain John Hunter and Lieutenant Phillip Gidley King, RN, set out in a longboat to make an accurate survey of the harbour’s western reaches. It was on this trip that the area, later to be known as Ashfield, was sighted. The first man to officially make his home in the Ashfield district was Baron Augustus Alt, the colony’s first Surveyor-General. In 1794, the year of his grant, a number of farms covered the Ashfield area already and had considerable value.
As the amount of traffic on the Sydney-Parramatta track and on the Liverpool Road increased, so too did the number of staging inns that were needed to service the mail coaches. With the inns came tradesmen such as blacksmiths, wheelrights, saddlers, and yardsmen creating the nucleus of a village community.
With the arrival of the railway in 1855, Ashfield soon ceased to be a village. It grew from 70 houses and 200 people in 1855, to 200 dwellings and approximately 1, 000 residents by 1866. Ashfield was proclaimed a Municipality under the name and style of the “Borough of Ashfield” on Friday 29 December 1871. The first Council Meeting was held on February 15 1872.
