Varroville was known as Varroville farm. An area of 1,000 acres (4 km2) of land was granted by Governor Lachlan Macquarie to Dr Robert Townson, a scientist and scholar in 1809. Townson developed the farm and grew a vineyard and raised cattle. Townson died in 1827 and ownership passed onto Thomas Wills the brother of Sarah Redfern wife of William Redfern. In 1837 the farm was sold to Charles Sturt a famous explorer who moved in from Mittagong. James Raymond took over in 1839. Alfred Cheeke, a Supreme Court judge was a later owner. By 1900 Varro Ville was a leading dairy farm in the Campbelltown area. The farmhouse fell into disrepair, but has been restored by the new owners and the National Trust. The Central Hills Scenic Protection Lands were created in April 1972 to preserve the land use in the area. Campbelltown Council has refused small block subdivisions. The name Varroville was officially adopted in 1972 for the area between Raby and Denham Court. The area was previously part of Minto.
