The suburb\'s name is derived from its namesake Henley, by the banks of the Thames in Oxfordshire. Parramatta River had been known as the \'Thames of the Antipodes\' and other nearby suburbs were also named after Thames localities of Greenwich, Woolwich and Putney.
Henley was originally known as Blandville, after Dr William Bland (1789-1868) who was transported for killing a fellow naval officer in a duel. Bland arrived in 1814 but was pardoned in 1815 and began a private practice. Bland resided in the city but owned the land here that he subdivided in 1866.
