History[edit]

Tregear was the name of a homestead built in the area which at one stage was owned by John King-Lethbridge, son of Robert Copland Lethbridge and Mary King. It was named after the Lethbridge family's estate in Cornwall, England.[2] The land was held by Lethbridge family until 1942 when it was taken over by the RAAF and then sold in 1951.
