The name Royston has been in use for many years, apparently first being recorded in 1611. Caroline Park House was previously known as Royston House but was renamed in 1739. The present streets were laid out in the mid 1930s, and houses deigned by the City Architect, E J MacRae, were built.

Royston Primary School (now closed) was also designed by E J MacRae and was opened in 1937.
