Hamilton Hill Description


The earliest known settler at Hamilton Hill was Sydney Smith, the agent of Captain George Robb. Robb arrived in Western Australia in 1830 and took up land south of Fremantle. During the next 12 months, Smith was actively engaged in establishing Robb's farm. In a letter dated August 27th 1830, he gave his address as Hamilton Hill. The origin of the name, and whether it was Robb or Smith who did the naming, remains uncertain but the area has been known as such ever since.
