Marrickville South Settlement History
Settlement of the area dates from 1794 when the first land grant was made. Land was used mainly for farming and market gardening. Population was minimal until the 1850s. Residential and industrial growth took place from the 1880s into the 1920s, aided by the opening of the railway line and the establishment of a brickworks business. Many apartments and units were built from the 1950s, while some industries closed or decentralised. The population declined slightly between 1996 and 2006, and then increased marginally between 2006 and 2011 as new dwellings were added to the area.
