A locality and a reach of the Hawkesbury north of Richmond and upstream of Argyle Reach. A very early name but its origins are uncertain. Steele says: ‘A district along the river (settled by free men) in the early times.’ Some say it was called after two brothers of that name who settled there. The 1828 Census lists a Samuel Freeman, millwright, living at Richmond.
