Urban Space in the Suburbs:
The Pacific Highway and
Sydney’s Upper North Shore

Some timber getters made the North Shore their home. The first grant along the ridgeline road was made in
1819. Daniel Dering Matthew received 400 acres at Roseville and leased twice that amount for a sawmill. Richard Wall
received a sixty acre grant in April 1821 while Robert Pymble was given his land in 1823.[5] Pymble established a
timber mill as did his neighbour Thomas Hyndes. By the end of the 1820s, which also marked the end of land grants
in the colony, twenty individuals had received blocks in the district ranging in size from 40 to 2000 acres.[6] The main
road became dotted with that most essential amenity, a public house. By 1833, Daniel Bullock had opened a New Inn
on Robert Pymble’s land.[7] Later known as the Traveller’s Rest, the pub was a centre for drinking, socialising and bare
knuckle fighting. In direct contrast with its later characterisations, the Lane Cove River district was described in 1841
as the habitat of disreputable people who engaged in smuggling and sly grog transactions.[8] W.H. Wells’ Gazetteer of
1848 gave the population of Gordon Parish between Roseville and Wahroonga as 443 people in 107 houses.[

DOES ANYONE KNOW ANYTHING AT ALL ABOUT A PROPERTY CALLED BARAMBAH AT ROSEVILLE IN THE 1820s-1830s ?
