Prior to the European set­tle­ment around 1790s, Seven Hills was once occu­pied for thou­sands of years by indi­gen­ous set­tlers who pos­sibly iden­ti­fied with the the Darug nation.

Seven Hills was first vis­ited by Europeans in the set­tle­ment of the colony of New South Wales, as early as April 1788 by either Arthur Phil­lip or Watkin Tench in June 1789.

The first land grant by the colo­nial admin­is­tra­tion (in what was then known as the “Dis­trict of Toongab­bie”) was to John Red­mond in May 1793, whose grant of 60 acres (24 ha) later became Sta­tion Road.

About 13 fur­ther grants were made in this area before 1800. Mat­thew Pearce gained about 160 acres in 1795 and would later on name his grant after Kings Langley due to his claim of being born in Eng­land where the king resided.


This area con­sists present places from Chapel Lane all the way to Toongab­bie Creek and Old Wind­sor Road and would all become known as Seven Hills around the 1800’s because his farm was loc­ated nearby Par­ra­matta. In 1804, part of the Cum­ber­land Plain in the area was reserved for use as Pro­spect Com­mon and later on around 1819, two 50 acres (20 ha) of land grants were given to Samuel Dent and Haynes.

Seven Hills con­sisted of a much lar­ger area than now and by 1900, own­ers from the mod­ern sub­urbs of Glen­wood and Bella Vista have been able to suc­cess­fully identify their land loc­ated in Seven Hills.

Up to the 1970s, hous­ing schemes would charge land that was once part of Seven Hills to cre­ate Lalor Park and Kings Langley’s suburbs.

The rail­way from Par­ra­matta to Black Town Road sta­tion was com­pleted as a single lane in 1860.

As time went on though, a res­id­ence and sid­ing were built nearby a level cross­ing at what was to one day become Toongab­bie Road in Decem­ber 1863. A plat­form was later on cre­ated in 1869 and any stops made at the sta­tion were sched­uled in the timetable from Septem­ber of that year. The road bridge on Seven Hills Road to the rail­way line was then con­struc­ted in 1975 after repla­cing the level cross­ing there.
