    Rozelle Hospital is situated in the Municipality of Leichhardt, a district composed of 15 original land grants made between 1789 and 1821.   The last four grants to be issued in the district were those on the north-western edge and these grants comprise the estates which influenced European settlement in the viciniity of Rozelle Hospital.
     
    There were two small grants to Francis Lloyd who received 50 acres in 1819 (Portion 112, Parish of Petersham) and
    LUKE RALPH who received 50 acres in 1821  (Portion 113, Parish of Petersham)  These adjoining grants stretched from Long or Iron Cove to Rozelle Bay.  To their west Lawrence Butler received 100 acres in 1819 (Portion 114, Parish of Petersham).  These grants by the 1840's were in common ownership and became Garry Owen estate, later known as Callan Park.
    The Pay and Muster Rolls have been microfilmed for the years 1810 to 1823 and the reel numbers are 417 and 418.
    This is to certify that Luke Ralph Private late of the Royal Veteran Company  disbanded on the 24th of September last is entitled to a Grand of Land according to the instructions of His Excellency Major  General Sir Thomas Brisbane
