Rossmoyne

 

Postcode: 6148  |  Location: 14km to perth

 

 

Rossmoyne is a suburb within the City of Canning. Rossmoyne is located 14 kilometres south of central Perth, and is bounded by Leach Highway to the south, and Bull Creek to the west, the Canning River to the north, and Shelley to the east.  The name Rossmoyne derives its origin from the desire of a developer for a good promotional name. In 1937, the developer, V W Webb and his family made a trip to Scotland and on their return, sought a promotional name for some of their Rossmoyne land.

 

Mrs Webb coined the name Rossmoyne, a euphonic name with no particular background, although connected with the trip to Scotland. The name was used for an estate put up for sale in 1955 and soon became the commonly used suburb name for this area. By 1959, development had progressed sufficiently for the Canning Road Board to seek official recognition for the name Rossmoyne. The name was approved in February 1960 and gazetted the following month.

 

History

The name Rossmoyne was devised in 1937 after the land developer V W Webb and his family made a trip to Scotland. The name has no connection with the area but was thought to be suitable for marketing a subdivision in 1955. The use of the name as a suburb was approved in February 1960 and gazetted the following month.
