Kingsthorpe is in the Darling Downs, 147 kilometres west of Brisbane. The town was named after pastoralist brothers Colonel Henry Venn King and George Beresford King, of the Gowrie pastoral property. St Gregory's Anglican Church in Meringandan was consecrated on Sunday 12 September 1886 by Bishop William Webber. It was located on a 1-acre (0.40 ha) piece of land near the railway station, donated by Mr Foland. It was built by Mr Maag and was 18 by 38 feet (5.5 by 11.6 m) and could seat 150 people. In 1905 it was relocated to Kingsthorpe where it was re-consecrated at St Gregory's by Archbishop St Clair Donaldson on 20 October 1905. The church was closed circa 1982.
Kingsthorpe State School opened on 10 July 1911. Kingsthorpe was in the Shire of Rosalie until 2008, when the shire was amalgamated into the new Toowoomba Region local government area.
