Herne Hill

William Locke Brockman, pastoralist and stockbreeder, arrived at the Swan River colony in January 1830 and took up a land grant in Upper Swan. Well to do, Brockman brought with him considerable livestock, including three rams and forty six pure merino ewes, a prefabricated house and seven servants. He named his grant "Herne Hill" and soon set to work developing it. He lived on his land at Herne Hill and was a member of many societies and served on the Legislative Council. He died at Herne Hill in 1872.
