Enters the western shore of the Hawkesbury River opposite Wiseman’s Ferry. James Webb (1763?-1848) arrived in the Second Fleet in 1790 as a member of the New South Wales Corps. After discharge in 1794 he worked as a shipwright and acquired land along the Hawkesbury. In 1822 he was said to be living at ‘Lower Branch’ when he sought permission to launch a vessel of 15 tons. He was the first European settler at Brisbane Water, where in 1823 he was granted a temporary right to occupy land. Surveyor Matthew’s survey map of 1833-34 shows James Webb owned 530 acres on the western shore of Webb’s Creek at its confluence with the Hawkesbury River.
