Kingsgrove is a suburb in southern Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Kingsgrove is 13 kilometres (8.1 mi) south of the Sydney central business district and lies across the local government areas of the Canterbury-Bankstown Council, Bayside Counciland the Georges River Council.
Governor Philip King granted 500 acres in 1804 to Hannah Laycock (1758-1831), the wife of Quartermaster Thomas Laycock (1756-1809). She named the farm King’s Grove in Governor King’s honour. This was later simplified to Kingsgrove. The area would be now bounded by Kingsgrove Road, Bexley Road and William Street. Governor King made Thomas Laycock an officer of merit and recommended him to fill the vacancy an ensign in the New South Wales Corps. Two of their sons, William and Samuel were also given land grants of 100 acres (0.4 km2) each in the same area in 1804 and Hannah received another 120 acres in 1812. The entire 820 acres (3.3 km2) of Kingsgrove farm when sold to Simeon Lord in 1829, extended from Campsie and Clemton Park to Stoney Creek Road. The first inn built in the area was the Man of Kent on Kingsgrove Road, near Morris Avenue and was licensed on 1 July 1850. The licensee Evan Evans, was formerly a sea captain. In 1856, Thomas Smithson, a tobacco manufacturer from Leeds, England, established the Cooks River Tobacco Manufactory on Stoney Creek Road. He marketed snuff and cigars into Sydney until the 1880s. One of Thomas’ sons, James Edward Smithson, made and sold wine from Smithson’s Wine Bar on the site of today’s Bexley Golf Course. Kingsgrove railway station opened in 1931 and development in the area followed.
