Marrabel and Districts

The following are the Selections in the Light River Special Survey which enabled the wealthy speculators in the United Kingdom to purchase land in  the Light River District in the early 1940s .
This area became known as Hamilton and the first settlers later purchased this land for approx one pound an acre.
 
In 1875-76 the Council of Hamilton was formed, and in 1884-92 the Council of Waterloo was as well. In  1931-32 these councils amalgamated with the District Council of Saddleworth to form the District Council of Saddleworth and District. Part of the Hamilton Council went to the Kapunda Council.
The Hamilton and Waterloo assessments are included.
