The Rimington Family were early settlers of Kew, acting as pioneers for the area. George Rimington, who immigrated at some point during the mid-to-late 19th century, is well-known for his work at the Parkhill Nurseries, situated between Mont Victor and Burke Road. This nursery played host to multiple plants, shrubs, and trees otherwise not seen in the area and became well-known in the area for that fact. The file includes: A transcript of an interview with Stanley Rimington, son of George Rimington, and a book from Parkhill Nurseries which details the flora present at their Kew location but also the area.
