Woodbridge was the name given by Stirling to Swan Location 16, a lot of 4,000 acres which he reserved to himself and named after the place in Surrey from which his wife, Ellen Mangles, originated. Woodbridge is also the name of the suburb in that area, and its railway station. The Helena River runs through it. Governor Stirling Senior High School is in it. And Charles Harper's house, Woodbridge, is also there.
