Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, was the birthplace of an early district settler, Arthur Smith.
Plentiful rain and fertile river soils made the area suitable for a range of crops. Tobacco growing has been a staple crop, and many families are of Italian or Spanish origin. There are also orchards and vineyards, along with more conventional pastoral properties.
There have been schools at Cheshunt and Cheshunt South, but both have been closed. Cheshunt has two saw mills, a hall, a store and a post office. Its census populations have been 117 (1911), 201 (1933) and 258 (1961).
