My understanding was the name was a derivative of ‘Rose Hill galah’ though HANZAB only mentions  ‘Rosehill or White-cheeked Rosella’.

G'day all,


I have read that the Sydney suburb of Rosehill was named after Rosellas.


However, in last nights (Sunday)  ABC program "Buried Alive - part 2" the commentator stated that Rosehill was named after a G. Rose Esq.

Sounds more plausible.


Any comments ?
