Settlement of the area dates from the mid 1800s, with land used largely for farms and orchards. Rapid growth took place during the late 1970s and early 1980s, as the area was developed by the Housing Commission. The population declined between 1991 and 2006, and then increased slightly between 2006 and 2011, largely a result of an increase in the average number of persons living in each dwelling and an increase in the share of occupied dwellings.
Claymore is an established residential area.
