covers the original grant known as
"Flushcombe." An inn was opened on
a smithy. These, and a few settlers'
cottages, formed the nuclous of a vil
lage. When the Richmond line was
way station was called Blacktown Junc
tion, and thus a misnomer was perpetu-
ated, for, by reason of its altitude,
Blacktown enjoys plenty of sunshine.
The whole district abounds with ro-
mances of the past! It was a favorite
haunt of Donohue and Walmsley, the
bushrangers, who, after some crime in
the vicinity of Richmond, would ride
across country to their lair in the neigh
borhood of Prospect. Many a newly-
married couple, driving from St. John's,
Parramatta, to "The Honeymoon Inn,"
Richmond, had good reason to fear these
two outlaws.
On one occasion, they waylaid Mr.
Lethbridge, a country justice, on the
Flushcombe-road, and stripped him of
everything he stood up in.
The late W. B. Campbell, who had a
large business next to the Royal Hotel,
George-street, Sydney, acquired a large
area of land adjoining Fluschombe-road,
and built a beautiful mansion, which he
called "Flushcombe Turrets." The
building was destroyed by fire some
years ago, and the estate was subse-
quently subdivied.
The name of Blacktown has never
been popular, and substitutes suggested
include "Fluschombe," "Pomonoa," and
"Fairview,'' while among old-timers
still linger memories of "Billygoat
Hill", the higher .round over-looking
the railway line. That, in turn, is not
a popular appellation to-day, when resi
dents. confidently expect Blacktown soon
to become the terminus of the suburban
railway system..
The sun having passed its meridian,
floods the little township with its glow-
ing brightness. Towards the west is
the long range of the Blue Mountains—
"That towering far away
into the sunlight ether catch the ray
of sinking suns at eve."
A great fleecy cumulus crowns the
distant top of Mt. Piddington, while
towards the north, two spiral columns
of grey smoke denote that someone
"is burning off" on the rich hillsides
of the Kurrajongs. Why, then, "Black-
town?"
