The township of Gawler was established through an application for a Special Survey by Henry Dundas Murray and John Reid as part of a syndicate of 12. The site was recommended for a town by Colonel William Light to David McLaren (the manager of the South Australian Company) when they passed through the district while returning from the Barossa in January 1839.

This early history by the well known George Loyau, published in 1880, contains a wealth of information on its early years.
