Dharawal country until the 1810s, when settlers and soldiers moved in, leading to armed conflict, the Bradbury area was subsequently named for William Bradbury, a settler and pub owner. Tanneries and a flour mill were built, amid the dairy farms that dominated the landscape. In the 1960s new suburbs were built as Sydney expanded.
