TOPONYMY
Setiu is the name of Bugis warrior. In the 1870s the Dutch fought a war against the Bugis, resulting in many Bugis people fleeing their homeland. Among those who fled was a warrior named Tok Setiu. He did not only flee because the Bugis lost the war but also because he does not want to live under Dutch rule. After travelling a few days, Tok Setiu and his group of people arrived in Terengganu which was at the time, under the rule of Sultan Ahmad II, the 10th Sultan of Terengganu (1875-1881). With the permission of the Sultan, he established a village which was named after him, Kampung Bukit Tok Setiu (lit. Tok Setiu Hill Vollage).

TOPONOMI
Setiu adalah nama seorang Pahlawan Bugis. Peperangan antara Belanda dengan Bugis telah berlaku dalam tahun 1870an. Ramai orang-orang Bugis lari meninggalkan negeri mereka. Antara mereka adalah seorang Pahlawan bernama Tok Setiu. Antara faktor yang menyebabkan beliau lari selain dari kalah berperang ialah kerana beliau tidak mahu hidup bertuankan Belanda. Setelah beberapa lama belayar Tok Setiu dan orang-orangnya pun tiba di Terengganu. Negeri Terengganu pada masa itu di bawah pemerintahan Sultan Ahmad II iaitu Sultan Terengganu yang ke-10 ( 1875 - 1881). Dengan persetujuan Sultan Ahmad II beliau membuka perkampungan yang dinamakan Kampung Bukit Tok Setiu.
