Burwood Heights Name Origin
Burwood derived its name from a grant of 250 acres made by Governor Hunter on 3 August 1799, to Captain Thomas Rowley of the New South Wales Corps, who named the land after the Burwood Farm on which he had lived in his native Cornwell, England.
Burwood Heights Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from the 1790s when the first land grants were made. Some growth took place during the early 1800s, with land used mainly for farming, vegetable growing and timber-getting. By the 1840s a small village had formed at Enfield. Further growth took place during the late 1800s, and then from the post-war years into the 1960s. The population was relatively stable during the 1990s, and then increased slightly between 2001 and 2011, a result of new dwellings being added to the area, particularly medium and high density housing.
