The suburb was named after the township of Annerley in the County of Surrey by the Hon. Digby Denham, an early Queensland premier.
It was originally known as Stephens Shire after Thomas Blacket Stephens. The Soden family were early settlers in the area and ran a bus service between Annerley and Brisbane.
Estate maps can give information about land subdivisions, including how the land was subdivided, when it was first auctioned, who the surveyors were and who sold the land. They are useful for investigating the history of urban land areas. They were also used as advertisements for land sales.
