  • Notes  Married:
    • The present day suburb of Haberfield occupies all the land north of Parramatta Road between Iron Cove and Long Cove Creeks granted to Nicholas Bayly in 1803. It was purchased in 1805 by emancipist and successful businessman and land owner, Simeon Lord, for 850 pounds.Lord named these 480 acres "Dobroyde" for his cousin's home in Lancastershire. When his eldest daughter, Sarah, married Mr David Ramsay in 1825, the Dobroyd Estate was part of her marriage settlement. Mr Ramsay died in 1860, leaving his widow to dedicate land for church, manse, school and cemetery (St David's, Dalhousie Street) and to divide the rest of the Dobroyd Estate amongst their ten children. Three of the Ramsay children put portion of their land up for sale in the 1880s. Louisa's land was subdivided into villa allotments in 1885. However, despite the extension of the tramway from Leichhardt along Ramsay Street to Five Dock, it would appear that very few villas were constructed, probably because of the restraints put on investment and development by the Depression of the 1890s. Dr Ramsay and his son Edward were keen gardeners, and belonged to the Linnean Society and Australian Museum. Haberfield street names, such as Percy, Lord, Dalhousie, commemorate the Ramsay era

      Oldest daughter, Mary Louisa married Alexander Learmouth in 1850. On the ridge to the west of the Ramsay's 'Dobroyde Homestead', they commissioned early colonial architect John Bibb to design 'Yasmar House', being Ramsay spelt backwards. 'Yasmar' was deliberately sited amongst its 'gardensque' designed gardens and arboretum, that continues to this day.

      Following her death, Sarah Ramsay's heirs began selling land to Richard Stanton, the first 50 acres being between Deakin and Waratah Streets. Stanton was inspired by early the early town planning movement which sought to regulated uses and building types, and example he had seen in England and the USA. Stanton was a co-founder of the Town Planning Institute with John Sulman ,and the Real Estate Institute..Ref:Records of the Ashfield Council
