History

The area was first settled by Henry Rhodes after obtaining a land grant in 1841 of about 1,000 acres (4 km2) from the Republic of Texas. The name, however, comes from a later settler, John G.(possibly Grey, but no proof for middle name exist,) Jolly, who purchased 160 acres (0.65 km2) in 1866. John and his wife, Nancy Isabell (Guill) Jolly, operated a blacksmith shop and store. The Jollys donated land for a school and the cemetery in which they were eventually buried. Jollyville remained lightly settled for decades; only twenty families lived in the area in 1960. Eventually, the growth of nearby Austin led to the development of Jollyville as a suburban community.
