Lewisham Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from 1794 when the first land grant was made. Land was used mainly for farming and timber-getting. Population was minimal until the mid 1800s when land was subdivided and access improved. Significant growth took place during the late 1800s and early 1900s, aided by the opening of the railway station in 1885. Expansion continued during the post-war years. The population declined slightly from the early 1990s, a result of slight dwelling stock loss and a decline in the average number of persons living in each dwelling.
Major features of the area include the retail area along Parramatta Road, Morton Park, the Lewisham railway station, Trinity Grammar School and several other schools.
