Settlement history

Settlement of the area dates from the late 1830s, with land used mainly for farming and vineyards. Some growth took place in the late 1800s as land was subdivided. The area remained primarily rural in nature until the post-war years, with growth particularly from the 1960s as a result of subdivision of land around the Magill Estate. The population and dwelling stock increased slightly during the 1990s. The population was relatively stable between 2001 and 2011, a result of some new dwellings being added, but a decline in dwelling occupancy rates.
