Summary
  • On April 12th 1853 John Daykin Holbrook purchased a block of land in Underdale abutting the River Torrens and adjoining a similar block purchased on the same day by Thomas Hardy. Both gentlemen intended to establish vineyards. Hardy called his property “Bankside” and Holbrook named his “Wilford” after his home village in Nottinghamshire England. The Holbrook family homestead stood on the eastern side of what was to become Holbrooks Road, just south of the river crossing. The front of the homestead, portion of which was built of mud bricks, was covered with wisteria. Adjacent to this building were several out-buildings, including the winery with cellars, a section of which still stands alongside the Torrens.
