The area of present-day county Chum Saeng was first established in the late 19th century by the government as Tambon Koei Chai by some parts of the Mueang district were separated from Nakhon Sawan. In 1903 the Home Office assessed the Tambon on to Amphoe Phan Lan, named after the central tambon. The name, however, was again renamed a few years later in Koei Chai. As the administration building was laid in 1915 on the west bank of the Nan Maaenam, the district got its present name: Chum Saeng.
