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.
