History of Kew
Kew is a residential suburb 6 km east of central Melbourne, bordered on its west by the Yarra River and on its north by Earl Street and Harp Road, on its south by Hawthorn and on its east by Balwyn.
In 1840 John Hodgson (1799-1860) took a squatting licence over Studley Park, on Kew’s eastern bank of the Yarra River. Hodgson was born at Studley, Yorkshire (hence ‘Studley Park’), and his surname became a street name in a subdivision nearby. Hodgson’s ‘Studley House’ in Nolan Avenue is on the Register of the National Estate. In 1851 Crown land sales in lots of between 15 and 80 ha took place in Kew. One of the purchasers, Nicholas Fenwick had his 495 ha estate subdivided into quarter-hectare blocks with streets laid out. He named the streets after English statespeople (Walpole, Gladstone, and so on), and the subdivision was named Kew, probably because its closeness to Richmond mirrored the relationship between London’s suburbs of the same names. The estate was north-east of the Kew junction, bordered by Princess and High Streets.
Access across the river was provided early in the 1850s by a bridge to Burwood Road, Hawthorn which resulted in Hawthorn being developed ahead of Kew. Nevertheless, two hotels were opened along High Street by 1854, one at the junction and the other, the Harp of Erin, at the corner of High Street and Harp Road. Congregational, Baptist, Primitive Methodist and Anglican churches were opened in 1854, 1855, 1856 and 1858 respectively. The Anglican church opened a school in 1856 and the combined Protestant churches opened one in 1859. It was replaced by a government school in 1870. Direct access to Kew was gained when the Johnston Street bridge was built in 1858. There is now a cluster of soaring churches edifices (Anglican, Baptist, Catholic, Uniting) east of Kew junction.
