History

Historical notes: The subject property is part of 1200 acres granted by Governor Brisbane to merchant James Chandler in 1831. The subject house was built c1893; the builder and initial owner are unknown. The house is shown on a Water Board plan of 1899 (MWS&DB, Rockdale Sheet 66, 1899). By 1908 the house was in the occupation of Henry Edward Hoggan and his wife Jessie (Sands Directory). The Hoggans had arrived in Sydney from Plymouth as assisted immigrants in 1883, aboard the Samuel Plimsoll (State Records NSW - Assisted Immigrants index). They established themselves in commercial and social circles in Sydney and became locally well-known. They lived in Forest Road, Arncliffe, before moving to the subject house (Sands Directory). Henry Hoggan died in 1919 (‘Funerals’, SMH, 3 March 1919). In 1916, while the Hoggans were in residence a son, George, died in at sea when the ship on which he was a passenger, RMS Persia, sank (‘The Late Mr G Hoggon [sic]’, SMH, 7 January 1916). By 1953 the house was in the occupation of Alan and Mavis Gurr (‘Deaths’, SMH, 19 May 1953).
