The population of the "Upper Westown" area, which is largely the same area as the suburb, was 1,503 in the 2006 Census, an increase of 60 from 2001.
An early settler of the area was Peter Elliot, who arrived on the Amelia Thompson in 1841. He established the first dairy in New Plymouth, which he called Hurdon. A school was established in his barn in 1853.
