Macquarie Links was officially recognized as a suburb name by the Geographical Names Board in August 1997. The name pays homage to Governor Macquarie, the fifth governor of the penal colony of New South Wales. It also recognizes the heritage of nearby Macquarie Field House(50KB, PDF), built on James Meehan’s grant. Meehan also named after his grant after Macquarie.
The suburb name also cleverly alludes to the Scottish heritage of Governor Macquarie in the “links” of the golf course. The golf links wind gently through the new gated estate. The sport of golf developed in Scotland as early as the fifteenth century according to Encyclopedia Britannica.
The land developers, Monarch Investments, were keen to honour the significant contribution that Governor Macquarie made to the foundation, and ultimate viability of the penal colony of New South Wales. Monarch’s promotional brochures for the development state, “Macquarie endeavored ‘to make this country a happy home to every emancipated convict who deserves it’….We are proud to associate Macquarie Links with the man who left such great legacy to our country and its part of our vision that Maquarie Links will be a legacy to be enjoyed by future generations.”
Streets in the suburb highlight historical associations with Governor Macquarie, and his Scottish heritage. Governors Way and Macquarie Links Drive pay direct homage to Lachlan Macquarie.
Hebrides Avenue is a reference to Macquarie’s birthplace on the island of Ulva, Inner Hebrides, Scotland.
Lochburie Way is believed to be named after Loch Buie/Lochbuie both a straight of water and a village on the Island of Mull, Scotland. Scaranish Way is possibly named after the town of Scarinish, on the Isle of Tire, in the Scottish Inner Hebrides.
Lord Castlereagh Circuit honor’s the British secretary of state for the colonies who was instrumental in the appointment of Lachlan Macquarie as the Governor of the convict colony of New South Wales. Macquarie arrived in the store ship Dromedary, with his second wife, Elizabeth Henrietta in Sydney Harbour, 31 December 1809. His first wife Jane Jarvis had died of consumption in Macao in 1796. In 1804 Macquarie had become Laird, or owner, of the Lochbuie estate upon his uncle’s death. Macquarie renamed the estate Jarvisfield in honour of his first wife.
