History

oseph Chariton applied for a tillage lease in 1865, and in 1868, he purchased Swan Locations 528 & 529 both blocks having Brook frontage, just south of the Lennard's Brook bridge. On SL 528, he built a Flourmill and mud bat cottage using material from the Brook. Grain was gristed here from 1870 to 1885.
In later years a Mr. Beswick lived here growing vegetables, which he sold in Gingin. There was a butchery across Cockram Road and Mr. Beswick was also the Nightman. The town sanitary site used at that time was a small block adjoining the south of SL 529. The mud bat cottage was lived in up to the 1960's.
