Victoria Council Minutes 1871

Field notesStanton Library

Join the Historical Services team and help us unlock information from Stanton Library's archives by transcribing handwritten Council minutes.

In 1871 the Borough of Victoria, which covered the densely populated areas around Blues Point Road and Lavender Bay, separated from St Leonards to become a distinct municipality. Alderman Matthew Charlton was elected Mayor. Town clerk and local shopkeeper, Walter George Willington, made his substantial London Store in Blues Point Road available for meetings.

North Sydney Municipal Council was formed in 1890 by the amalgamation of St Leonards, East St Leonards and Victoria Borough Councils.
