Gledswood is a heritage-listed former vineyard, colonial farm and homestead and now tourist complex, golf course and private residence at 900 Camden Valley Way in the south-western Sydney suburb of Gledswood Hills in the Camden Council local government area of New South Wales, Australia. It was built from 1827 to 1855 by James Chisholm. It is also known as Buckingham. The property is privately owned. It was added to the New South Wales State Heritage Register on 22 December 2006
Gabriel Louis Marie Huon de Kerilleau left France and fled to England during the French Revolution. He joined the New South Wales Corps and arrived in Sydney “in the reduced circumstances of a private soldier” under the name Gabriel Louis in the ‘Surprise’in October 1794 (Carroll, 1983, 31).
He was discharged in 1807 and, because of his knowledge of (fluency in) French, became tutor to John Macarthur’s sons.
Governor Macquarie granted him the 400 acres (162ha) which became ‘Buckingham; as from 1 January 1810, and he called it Buckingham after the Marquis of Buckingham, who had some part in arranging his discharge.
Huon de Kerilleau employed convicts to quarry stone on the property and start his building programme. Their first project was the small cottage where they were chained each night. Then they went on to the coach house and the servants’ quarters.
In 1816 Huon de Kerilleau sold the property to James Chisholm for 250 pounds and moved to a new property at Bungonia, near the future site of Goulburn. His son, Paul Huon, became a pioneer in the Wodonga district.
James Chisholm renamed the property “Gledswood”, and it was he who, in about 1827, finished the main homestead. Chisholm had been involved in the rum trade in the early days of the colony. He was friendly with John Macarthur, who farmed nearby at Camden Park. They shared an interest in the wine industry, which flourished in the district.
Chisholm’s son James planted a vineyard in 1830. Vinedressers Frederick and Anna Worner of Wittenberg (Germany) were imported to work the vineyard in 1847. Chisholm once wrote “There is much about the vine that renders it an attractive pursuit.” The convict built cellar under the main homestead was capable of holding 20,000 bottles. sydney maxi taxi book, book a maxi/taxi, maxi/taxi cabs, maxi/taxis sydney, Sydney maxi/taxi, booking maxi/taxi, maxi/taxi to airport, maxi cab taxi, Cruise Transfers in Sydney, maxi taxi parramatta, best cabs in Sydney, best taxi service sydney.
