Suburb Overview

Stepney is a small triangular near-city suburb of Adelaide within the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters. Stepney contains a mix of retail, manufacturing, professional services and distribution outlets within a cosmopolitan population strongly influenced by post World War II immigration.

For much of its history Stepney has been largely working class with a preponderance of small houses and units on small blocks of land. However, Stepney is now the home of much light industry. Streets such as Nelson Street have lost their residents whilst other streets have seen the number of residents diminish as houses have been sold to accommodate a wide range of enterprises.

Stepney was named after an inner-city district in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets by George Muller who hailed from there and in 1850 created the 'Village of Stepney' out of section 259, Hundred of Adelaide. George built the Maid and Magpie hotel.

Whilst Adelaide was to be a city of fine buildings and a refined populace, set free from the constraints of convict influence, George Muller

Stepney was, despite its humble beginnings, not without influence and in1851 the South Australian Ballot Association was set up and at the Maid and Magpie Hotel on 11 February 1851 advocated the secret ballot. This movement was most significant in the development of South Australia's democratic system. Returning miners from the gold rushes of Ballarat and Bendigo were instrumental in building many of Adelaide's fine homes and businesses. Stepney shared in this phenomenon with some substantial residences amid the poorer houses, though bankruptcy was never far from those who acquired wealth quickly.

In the early 1860s semi-rural Stepney was the haunt of some rather colourful characters who operated around Adelaide

The equally romantically named Captain Thunderbolt, not to be confused with Captain Thunderbolt in New South Wales, was said to roam the area and even emulated the mythical Robin Hood...

Richard Dawes, carpenter of Prospect Village, returning home... was... attacked by Captain Thunderbolt... Mr Dawes him his purse, but on inspecting it some few silver coins of little value; said, "Oh! I see you're a poor man like myself and I don't want to injure you...

Whether the two were one and the same cannot be said, but the accounts support the growing mythology of lawlessness to be found in the area.

By the 1870s Stepney contained many small houses with small backyards and no drainage. They were considered to be hotbeds of disease and fever. These houses, however, gave Stepney much of its racy nature with its inhabitants developing strength in their inevitable struggles with life. In the late 1870s these struggles evidenced themselves in the pilfering of firewood and the subsequent use of dynamite in planted logs by the firewood owners, to exact retribution.

During this time Stepney became the home of some significant industries lured by proximity to the city and the development of improved transport. In 1888 the Phoenix Distillery at 42 Nelson Street was bought by Douglas Tolley and his brother Ernest, together with a London distiller Thomas Scott. They traded in the name of Tolley, Scott and Tolley. Tolley, Scott & Tolley was, at one time, Australia's leading brandy producer.
