Named after Captain Charles Howe Fremantle who arrived at the Swan River Colony on 2 May 1829, on the HMS Challenger. Fremantle had been despatched from the Cape of Good Hope on 20 March of that year, by Commodore Schomberg, of the Indian Squadron, and after anchoring off the mouth of the Swan River, hoisted the British flag on the South Head, and took formal possession in the name of His Majesty King George IV, of "all that part of New Holland which is not included within the territory of New South Wales." The name Fremantle has at times and in various records been incorrectly spelt as 'Freemantle'.
