Land Grants

Land Grants

This list of land grants in the Penrith City area is by no means complete. The list will grow as our research continues. In 1821, John Oxley, Surveyor-General published in the Sydney Gazette a description of the District of Evan as ‘Bounded on the south side by the Bringelly District; on the east side by the South Creek to the Richmond Road , thence by that Road by the Chain of Ponds at Larra’s Farm, and by the Richmond Common Line to Matthew’s Farm, opposite the Grose River; and on the west side by the Nepean River’. Those grants issued to 1805 were all in the District of Evan.
