History

The name Beechboro reflects the history of the first European owner of land in the area. In 1892 Henry Brockman subdivided land in the area. The Brockman Family were well established landowners in the Swan River Colony and had considerable estates in England. Beechboro Park (Kent, England) was the name of one of these estates and he named his new subdivisions after it. [2]
