The suburb was at first regarded as an outlying district of Newmarket, near the Newmarket saleyards (1877-1931), and was used for agistment, tanneries, fellmongering and dairying. There were also extractive industries.
Wilston and its neighbour Grange, were the rural parts of Windsor Shire, which was headquartered on Lutwyche Road, the main northern access route. Wilston was named after Wilston House (c1876) in Watson Street, Newmarket, and an early reference to it was the opening of Wilston post office in 1914. Within a year the Anglican St Albans church was opened in Inglis Street and the Catholic St Columba’s church was opened in Kedron Brook Road, a short distance away. A convent school was opened in 1917. The train line to Newmarket station (1899) had a stop at Wilston, and settlement spread northwards from there to the desirable elevated slopes of Eildon Hill. Settlement overtook the Hill and in 1920 the Wilston primary school was opened to the north-west, now in the suburb of Grange.
