If you don't count the local Indians, Layton was settled in 1847 of Moron pioneers. Many of the settlers who moved to the Layton area were English and in fact a part of area was referred to as Scotland due to the large number of settlers from that country. Like much of the Salt Lake Valley Layton's earlier years were devoted to Agricultural use, with the main crops being hay and grain. The crops were fed via canals from the nearby Weber river.
Layton was originally part of Kaysville, but in 1902 the area was declared a farming community with no need for a city government. It remained unincorporated until 1920.
