Description:

Very rare colonial engraving of Brownstown, Canonbar, New South Wales. Now a ghost town on the upstream side of where the modern-day Canonba Road crosses Duck Creek. The view shows the general store and John Brown’s double storey residence.

John Brown a prominent early settler had a landholding called ‘Canonba’ on Duck Creek, a hotel and store was built on his land and, in September 1853, the government reserved a piece of nearby Crown Land as the site of a village. In 1858, a post office was opened there, with a police station following in 1864. The village was proclaimed in 1866 and a town plan published in the same year, making it one of the earliest official settlements in the area. During the next 15 years, the village grew to be the main settlement in the region west of Dubbo.
