Brief City History
Perth was founded in 1829 largely because the British feared the French would establish a colony in Western Australia. In 1827 Captain James Stirling (1791-1865) sailed to the Swan River in his ship HMS Success. Stirling believed the area would be ideal for a settlement. He persuaded the British government to found a colony there, independent of the colony in New South Wales. Perth was named after the birthplace of Sir George Murray who was British Secretary of State for the Colonies when the city was founded in 1829. (However, Murray was not actually born in the town of Perth. He was born in Perthshire). However, this colony was not to be manned by convicts. Instead, the government would sell land cheaply to private citizens. (Ignoring the Indigenous Australians who lived there). The first ship to arrive in the Swan River Estuary was HMS Challenger captained by Charles Fremantle (1800-1869). On 2 May 1829, he claimed the whole of Australia outside New South Wales for Britain. Stirling arrived in June. He ran the new colony by the Swan River from 1829 to 1832 and from 1834 to 1838. The new colony developed on two sites. The port town was named Fremantle in honor of the Captain. Perth itself was founded on 12 August 1829. To mark the event a tree was cut down on the site of Kings Park. Soon there was a conflict between the European settlers and the Indigenous Australians. The indigenous people were driven off their land and many of them were killed. The conflict culminated in the Battle of Pinjarra. In 1892 there was a gold rush in Western Australia and as a result, the population of Perth boomed. Perth Mint was built in 1899 and the University of Western Australia was founded in 1911.
