In the 1830s, two large land grants were made to a Catholic priest, Father John Joseph Therry (1790-1864), who had arrived in Sydney in May 1820. The grant included what is now known as Clareville. It is thought that the suburb has historically been accessed by the water. In the early 1920s, the area was subdivided and Sydney residents purchased holiday homes. In the 1950s, with the increase in motor car use, the area became a residential zone. Houses in the area are now expensive, with many having water frontages and views.
- Bob Norton OBE (1922–1992), a former president of the Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons lived in Clareville.
