Specifically it is the land of the Buthera Balug clan who occupied the area when Europeans first settled the region in the early 1800s. A British settlement was established in 1839 at the crossing of the Goulburn River, or Warring as it is called by the Taungurung people, on the Melbourne-Sydney route where an inn was first built. The town was named Seymour by Thomas Mitchell after the British parliamentarian Lord Seymour. The Post Office opened on 1 July 1844. The railway arrived in 1872 along with substantial infrastructure to support it, establishing the town as an important rail hub for the Goulburn Valley, the Melbourne-Sydney railway and North Eastern Victoria. It was one of the first Victorian examples of the railway town phenomenon, in the heyday of the railway it employed 400 men and along with their families comprised one third of the town, or 1500 people.
