Sommers Town was a small village bounded by Windsor Road on the west and Pitt Town Road on the east, and adjoining Red House Farm, McGraths Hill, New South Wales which was planned in the 1840s but was never officially gazetted and did not progress. Advertisements for the sale of land and houses were published in newspapers during the 1840s. After this time the name disappeared from usage.
In September 1849, the Sydney Morning Herald published a notice of the forthcoming mortagee sale by auction by Laban White of the allotments in the village of Sommers Town. The sale was to take place on Saturday 8 September 1849 at “Collis' Inn, Magrath’s Hill”. The village may have been connected with Mr Charles Sommers who kept the Plough and Harrow Inn at McGraths Hill and transferred the licence to the Macquarie Inn in Macquarie Street, Windsor in July 1846,
