Pope, who came from Ryde on the Isle of Wight, who settled in the area and opened the 'Ryde Store'.Originally known by its Aboriginal name Wallumatta, the whole area between Parramatta and Lane Cove Rivers became known as the Field of Mars. The name Ryde was used from the 1840s and adopted as the name of the municipality in 1870. The suburb contains the oldest settler's cottage in Australia, Addington, on Victoria Road. Addington was built by the emancipist James Stewart, circa 1800. James Shepherd bought the property in 1810 and added a six-room house to the original sandstone cottage. Addington House, also known as "New Farm", is included on the NSW Heritage Register and the National Trust of NSW.In the build up to your vacation in Ryde, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Australia online trip builder.
