Samuel Henry Terry

Yesterday we had Virginia Constance Batty on the blog and her husband Charles Edgar Terry.
He was the son of S.H.Terry and we found in the newspaper of that time.

Box Hill
There have been two possibilities identified for the origin of the areas name. The first is that it takes its name from a stand of box trees that were once in the area. The second is that it was named after the hunting boxes built on the tops of the hills in the nineteenth century. It was common during the 1800’s for people to come from the city to their country hunting boxes for a few days hunting. The position of the boxes on the hills made it easy for hunters to take aim at their targets. One building has survived: "The Hunting Lodge”, thought to have been built by S.H. Terry on Governor Bligh's "Copenhagen Farm".

Box Hill has open rural landscapes popular with homeowners and specialist gardeners, such as those involved in hydroponics.

Towns surrounding Box Hill include: Maraylya, Nelson, Rouse Hill and Windsor.
