Watford was first settled in 1851 at what was known as Brown's Corners, a stagecoach stop between the village of Warwick and Brooke township. The Great Western Railway was built in 1856 and caused the settlement to be relocated to near the tracks, in its present location. Watford was either named for the Watford in England, or by Col. Brown for his home town of Watford, Ireland.
