Eastwood Suburb History

The hill to the east of Brush Farm was purchased by Dr. Forster`s nephew, William Rutledge in 1835. He named it Eastwood and in 1840 built a single storey house with views across to Brush Farm and down the Eastwood Valley. Edward Terry, Richard Terry`s brother, purchased the Eastwood Estate in about 1863. In 1871 Edward Terry was the first Mayor of Ryde in 1871 serving three terms in municipal office, and later served as the local member of parliament from 1898 to 1904. Eastwood Village emerged with the subdivision of Edward Terry`s Eastwood Estate, begun in 1905, after his death. The house became St. Kevin`s presbytery in 1929 till it was handed over to the Marist Brothers school in 1968. The suburb Eastwood gets its name from the Eastwood Estate and house.
