Is it a native ?

Could be a Broad leaf privet leaf ? (Which are imports - and toxic)
Privet are a common hedging plant in old gardens. The stems can have little "nodules" on them - which I can't see in your pic

Indian Hawthorn (Rhaphiolepis indica) ?

Doesn't look like broad leaf privet. Leaves aren't the right shape, and privet berries are usually in bunches. I think it's only the leaves and berries that are toxic, the wood is ok to use.
