The Name Sea Point came about in 1776 when a commander serving under Captain Cook, Sam Wallis, encamped his men in the area to avoid a smallpox epidemic in Cape Town at the time! This grew as a residential suburb in the early 1800’s and by 1839merged into a single municipality with neighbouring Green Point. By 1875 Sea Point and Green Point had a joint population of around 1425 and by 1904 it stood at 8839.
The opening of Sea Points first tramline was in 1862 and would be the first commuter suburb, linked to Camps bay and at the turn of the century, included the City Centre.
