Charleyong, originally known as Taylor`s village, was a flourishing alluvial mining and agricultural settlement from about 1854 until the early years of the twentieth century.

The site of Charleyong village and cemetery is situated within lands now owned by the Sydney Catchment Authority. There are 51 burials dated between 1864 and 1904 recorded at Charleyong.
