Suburb Profile: Stanhope Gardens

Overview

John Hillas (1768–1837) arrived in Australia in 1801 and received two land grants (in 1801 and 1804) on the Windsor Road. The second of these, of 150 acres, he named "Stanhope Farm". He established an inn, the "Stanhope Arms" on Windsor Road to cater for the traffic between the Macquarie Towns and Paramatta.

By 1856 the Pearce family owned "Stanhope Farm". In 1928 Jack Peel bought "Stanhope Farm" and called it "Stanhope Park Dairy".

In 1973 the New South Wales Housing Commission compulsorily resumed Stanhope Park Dairy.

The suburb name reflects these early properties. Stanhope Gardens Estate opened in 1995 and was formally recognised as a suburb in 1996.[1]

When Stanhope Gardens was first being developed into what it is today, it was called "Irish Town", Kellyville and Parklea. A petition was sent around with most people voting to keep Stanhope in the name, becoming Stanhope Gardens.
