The village is located on the Vaal River, 55 km north of Kimberley, 35 km northeast of Barkly West and 40 km south-west of Warrenton. It was founded in 1869 as a diamond-diggers’ camp and was administered by a village management board. The town started as Hebron, a mission station, but when diamonds were discovered, the area was flooded with prospectors and the town became a diggers' camp. The town was renamed after P F (Peter Ford) Windsor, the original owner of the land, who was instrumental in its development.
The Khoekhoen name is Chaib, ‘place of the kudu’.
