In 1750, Pemulwuy was born near what was later named Botany Bay.
military force was used against Pemulwuy and his people. Captain Paterson directed that soldiers be sent from Parramatta, with instructions to destroy 'as many as they could meet' of the Bediagal.
From 1792 Pemulwuy led raids on settlers at Prospect, Toongabbie, Georges River, Parramatta, Brickfield Hill and the Hawkesbury River.
In December next year David Collins reported an attack by Aborigines lead by Pemulwuy who 'were of the Hunter's or Woodman's tribe, people who seldom came among us, and who consequently were little known'.
Pemulwuy was wounded, receiving seven pieces of buckshot in his head and body. Extremely ill, he was taken to the hospital.
Pemulwuy was shot dead about 1 June 1802 by Henry Hacking. George Suttor described the subsequent events: 'his head was cut off, which was, I believe, sent to England'.
