The best-known Aboriginal person from that time is Pemulwuy, a Bidjigal leader who led the Indigenous resistance movement against the British forces, including sacking farms in Castle Hill, before his eventual capture and execution by the British militia.The Bidjigal people are today commemorated by Bidjigal Reserve which straddles the suburbs of, Baulkham Hills, and.The first European settler in the Baulkham Hills Shire was William Joyce.
