Abraham Fordham

Abraham Fordham

Abraham Fordham. According to a descendant, he established the 'Eagle on the Hill' hotel and owned a number of hotels in Adelaide, including Fordham's Hotel in the 1840s. He also organized and ran the first Adelaide show out of the back yard of one of his Hotels. Abraham Fordham arrived in 1837 at the age of 34. He established himself as a hotelier and opened the Fordham's Hotel, later known as the Sturt Arcade Hotel in Grenfell Street. The hotel was originally built from packing cases in which port wine had been brought out from England. He also established the Anderson's Arms on Mount Barker Road, the name of which was officially changed to Eagle-On-The-Hill in 1855. It was renamed because a large hawk/eagle often sat on a flagpole near the entrance. Bushrangers terroised patrons and travellers near the hotel. Abraham Fordham suffered ill health and died aged 61

John Knox Free Presbyterian Church, Morphett Vale. This church was built in 1856 in the gothic style with octagonal corner buttresses. The original building was constructed from freestone quarried from Myles' quarry. When the church was modified in 1876 buttresses were built to support the walls and a slate roof replaced the iron roof. The building was built by the Free Presbyterian Church who preferred not to worship in the St Andrews Presbyterian Church which was controlled by the Established Church of Scotland. See B 13391
