Richmond School was established in 1921 on the Richmond Estate, East Fremantle: William Temple Graham, an 1830s arrival, named his home there Richmond House. Walter Easton was a teacher who arrived in 1857 (coincidentally from Richmond, Surrey) to serve as schoolmaster to prisoners in the Fremantle Prison. (Lee: 117) He named his personal estate Windsor, and the School is at what is now 37 Windsor Rd.
