Settlement of the area dates from the late 1830s, although population was minimal until the late 1800s. Some growth took place in the interwar period. Significant development occurred during the post-war years, particularly in the 1950s and 1960s. The population fluctuated slightly from the early 1990s, a result of small changes in dwelling stock and the average number of persons living in each dwelling.
