History-Billy Blue
Billy Blue, the man, first came to public notice before the London courts in the late 1700's and arrived in Sydney as a convict in 1801. He was given a seven year sentence for stealing a small amount of sugar. He was thought to have been half American Indian, half African black. He became good friends with Governor Macquarie, not easy for a black ex con, then or now. He began a rowing boat service connecting the south side of Sydney Harbour with the north and was eventually given a grant of 80 acres at what is now called Blues Point. At Blue's Point nowadays, you can't buy the worst house in the street for a million bucks.
