Waterloo is located 4 kilometres south of the <a href="/pages/w/112880448725135">Sydney central business district</a> and is part of the <a href="/pages/w/133171003387050">local government area</a> of the <a href="/pages/w/109933225699529">City of Sydney</a>.</p><h2>History</h2><p>Waterloo took its name from the <a href="/pages/w/111291752225324">Battle of Waterloo</a> in 1815, when Allied and Prussian forces under the <a href="/pages/w/108435682513733">Duke of Wellington</a> and <a href="/pages/w/106019896095030">Blücher</a> defeated the French forces under <a href="/pages/w/111065862250843">Napoleon Bonaparte</a>.</p><p>In the 1820s Waterloo began supporting industrial operations including the Fisher and Duncan Paper Mill and the Waterloo Flour Mills owned by William Hutchinson and Daniel Cooper. <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Hutchinson_%28Superintendent%29" class="wikipedia">William Hutchinson</a>, superindendent of convicts and public works, had been granted of land in 1823. He sold Waterloo Farm to Daniel Cooper (1785-1853) and Solomon Levey (1794-1833). Cooper later bought out Levey's share and on his death the Waterloo Estate passed onto his son, also named Daniel Cooper, who was the first speaker of the <a href="/pages/w/126818910695440">New South Wales Legislative Assembly</a>.</p><h2>Location</h2><p>Waterloo is historically a working class region.
