Churchville was officially founded in 1815 by Amaziah Church (b. 1766 – d. 7 Sep 1831), who built a gristmill on the Credit River in what was then Toronto Township, York County. This small area surrounding the mill on the floodplain of the river valley was where the original town was focused.
Over the course of its history, the village grew to include many homes, a slaughterhouse, a tannery, a school house, a wooden boardwalk, several churches and small hotels and a cemetery. Many of these structures no longer exist, although some houses have survived from Churchville's early period, and are designated heritage houses.
Churchville, along with the northern extremities of Toronto Township, were amalgamated with into the new City of Brampton on 1 January 1974 as part of the restructuring of Peel County (which separated from York County in 1851) into the Regional Municipality of Peel.
