Physical Description

House, 222 Hampton Road is a single storey brick and iron house constructed in the Federation Bungalow style of Architecture. The walls are red face brick. The roof is hipped and gabled and clad with iron. The top half gable has a timber air vent. There is a painted brick corbelled chimney with two chimney pots evident.

The front façade has a central timber door with top and side lights, flanked on either side by timber framed sash windows, also with sidelights.


Hampton Road was originally called Prison Road. It derives its name from John Stephen Hampton (1810-1869), the Governor of WA from 1862-68. He was previously Comptroller of Convicts in Tasmania. His son, G. E. Hampton, was Acting Comptroller-General of the Fremantle Convict Establishment.
House 22 Hampton Road is on Lot 170 and 87 of CSL 134 and was built in the 1916/17 rate period. The cottage, owned by John Charles Johnston, was built on Lot 87 while the adjoining 170 was vacant and owned by G A Lefroy. By 1919/20 ownership of the vacant lot changed to Henrietta Matilda Miller and Annie Sophia Johnston was listed as the owner and John Johnston as the occupant. Ownership of the vacant lot changed again in 1920/21 to Annie. Annie and John were the owner/occupiers of 22 Hampton Road until at least 1951/52.
Before 1919/20 this part of Hampton Road was called Rockingham Road. Until 1935/36 the house was number 328 Hampton Road and then it changed to 192. In 1951/52 the house was assigned its current number.
This place was identified by the Fremantle Society in 1979/80 as being of cultural heritage significance. (Coded: Red: "Significantly contributing to the unique character of Fremantle")
