Regentville is a suburb of Sydney, close to Penrith. The property “Regentville” was built by Jamison around 1825 and is described as “a famous country house of the early period, named in honour of George IV, the former Prince Regent. “Regentville” was a model property with vineyards, an irrigation scheme, and a woollen mill built about 1842; it was here that Henry Parkes obtained his first employment in Australia.” Ref: ADB.
