The street was named after (and for) a Mr Arthur BROWNHILL who was born in 1900 and who served in World War 1. His parents were Charles Edward BROWNHILL and Eliza MORSLEY who lived on Lots 6 to 9 of the Thomastown Small Holdings.
Brownhill Street was named after Arthur’s father and his elder brother Edward, who also served in World War1, has a street named after him.
Another brother Joseph and a sister May are similarly honoured.
The Brownhill’s estate (or Range View Estate) was the first part of the Thomastown Small Holdings to be sub-divided as a residential estate in June 1952.
