Named by James Murtha Circa 1869. Originally from County Cork, Ireland, he named his property, Kingsholme. Other notable pioneering families included the Thomson family (Alexander Thomson) who emigrated from Scotland in 1889. Historically, farming families grew bananas, sugar cane and arrowroot. Some supplemented their farm income with dairying or sawmilling. Today, many former farms have been sub divided.
