Brayshaw's Hut was build for David Brayshaw in 1903. Like many men living in remote farming districts where there were fewer women than men, David never married or raised a family.

In August 1913, David met a tragic end while riding home from the nearby 'Bobeyan' where his brother lived. He left after lunch but didn't arrive home that evening. Two days later his riderless horse was found with David's body lying nearby. Stirrup irons were still on his feet and his hat and whip were on the ground nearby. He died from exposure.
