History of Wingham In 1841, George Rowley received the first land grant in the area at The Bight. Because supply boats couldn't get any farther up the Manning River, Wingham was chosen as the site for a government town. Wingham was named a town in 1844, but allotments were not formed until 1854, the same year that Henry Flett planned out Taree as a private town.
