Elizabeth Bay had been the site of a fishing village established by Governor Macquarie (1810–21) in c.1815 for a composite group of Cadigal people - the indigenous inhabitants of the area surrounding Sydney Harbour - under the leadership of Bungaree (d.1830). Elizabeth Bay had been named in honour of Mrs Macquarie. Bungaree's group continued their nomadic life around the harbour foreshores. Sir Thomas Brisbane, Governor 1821–5, designated Elizabeth Bay as site of an asylum for the insane. A pen sketch by Edward Mason from 1822 to 1823 shows a series of bark huts for the natives in the locality.
