First known as Richmond Common, Ham Common was one of three Commons set aside in the Hawkesbury District by Governor King on 11 August 1804. It once encompassed the present day towns of Richmond and Windsor across to Yarramundi..
‘The operations of the local Council have been much hampered of late by information from the Lands Department that obtaining of the gravel from a site on Ham Common must be discontinued. The Lands Department has now in contemplation the placing of the lands under the Council’s jurisdiction as a temporary common.’
