The original inhabitants of the Dural area were the Darug people.
Kenthurst is derived from the English County of Kent and hurst meaning a woody hillock or clearing.
The area was originally known as Little Dooral and later Little Dural. In 1886 a public meeting was held to discuss a change of name. Charles Gibb was the main agitator who declared that the settlement needed a more elegant title. “Kent Forest” was suggested as an appropriate name for the area where settlers from Kent County that had settled in the area, but it wasn’t popular and eventually Kenthurst was chosen. The meeting applied to the government ministry for permission to change the name, which was successful and was in general use from 1887.
In the 1890s, Dural and the Hills district was the chief supplier of citrus fruit for most of Australia. Poultry and vegetable farms also flourished.
