This area takes its name from either a stand of box trees that were once in the area or the fact that in the nineteenth century there were hunting boxes built on the tops of hills in this area. City people used to come to their country hunting boxes for a few days hunting and, perched on a hill, could aim at targets quite easily. One building has survived: “The Hunting Lodge, Box Hill” thought to have been built by S.H. Terry on Governor Bligh’s “Copenhagen Farm”.
