Percy Farm was originally held by Samuel Laycock, another son of Hannah Laycock. He was granted the land at the age of seventeen in 1804[1]. The farm was located opposite to the Northumberland Farm.

Sections of the property were later sold to Solomon Levy, John Williams and Francis Beamish. The area was later known as "Percy Ville". A 37 acre eastern section was transferred to Torrens Title in 1901 and subdivided into 112 blocks.[2]
