History

This area was part of the 50-acre (200,000 m2) Laycock estate granted to Hannah Laycock (1758-1831), the wife of Quartermaster Thomas Laycock (1756-1809), in 1804.

Frederick Moore Clements, who became wealthy from selling the family health restorer, Clements Tonic, owned 40 acres (160,000 m2) near William Street until his death in 1920. 'Clementon Park' was an early suggestion for the suburb’s name but records show Clemton Park was used from 1925. [1]
