Abbotsbury

Aboriginal people from the Cabrogal tribe, a sub-group of the Gandangara tribe, have lived in the Fairfield area for more 30, 000 years. European settlement began in the early 1800s with Abbotsbury named after Major Edward Abbott’s estate which was granted in 1806. In 1810 it was sold to William Browne for 1,000 pounds and later sold upon his death in 1831. It remained intact until the late 1800s when it was subdivided into smaller farm lots.
