Description:

Burwood Villa stood on the site of present day Burwood Park .

The villa house was built in 1814 by Alexander Riley, on the original 1,000 acres granted to Thomas Rowley in 1799. Rowley named his land “Burwood” after Burwood Farm where he had lived in Cornwall. He died in 1806 leaving his property to his five children and the Trustee gave approval in 1812 for the property to be sold to Alexander Riley for $520. Rowley’s children contested the sale, with the subsequent court case finding in their favour and that the Trustee had not followed the will. Burwood Villa was demolished in 1937.

Artist:

Joseph Lycett  (1777-1828)

Painter & forger convicted in 1811 & transported to Botany Bay.  On arrival he was given his ticket of leave but soon was re-convicted for forgery and sent to the penal settlement of Newcastle. Again in 1821 he received a pardon and returned to England armed with a portfolio of colonial views. In 1824 John published “Views in Australia”  dedicated to the Earl of Bathurst. Lycett is acknowledged as being one the most important colonial artists to record the progress of the colony.
