Durbanville, or Pampoenkraal as it was originally known, was founded in the early 19th century around a fresh water spring and was primarily a watering station for travellers en route to the interior from Cape Town - traces of the spring are still to be found on the grounds of the Durbanville Kinder Huis. The name was changed to D'Urban in 1836 and finally to Durbanville in 1886.

Durbanville at one time had its own court house, jail and magistrate until it became a Magisterial District of Bellville. Durbanville, or the Village, as it is still know to its older residents, has developed over the years to become today one of the most popular suburban areas of the Cape Peninsula.
