Abstract

Unique in Australia, three commons were set aside in the Hawkesbury River catchment for the exclusive use of the colony's free settlers to graze their stock. One of these Ham Common, was sandwiched between the towns of Windsor and Richmond. In this paper, I provide a thumb-nail sketch of the fragmentation of this Common.
