History Edit

Bensville is named after a pioneer of the area, Benjamin Davis. His father had been a school teacher at Kincumber and Davistown is named after his family. Benjamin started a shipbuilding business around 1850 and also owned 1,000 acres (4.05 km2) of land there. When a post office was opened, it was named Bensville, in honour of the pioneer.
