Scoresby History

The area of Scoresby was surveyed in 1857, and named after the Arctic explorer William Scoresby. Scoresby had died the previous year, shortly after his visit to the colony to experiment with terrestrial magnetism near the area which now carries his name. A township developed in the 1870s around the intersection of Stud Road and Ferntree Gully Road. A school was established in 1872, followed by a Methodist church. Once the swampy ground was drained, market gardens were established. Scoresby Post Office opened on 20 January 1890, closed in 1979 and reopened in 1984 as the suburb grew.

Following the First World War, George Hodges Knox settled and established an orchard in Scoresby. He later became a member of Parliament, and was knighted. The City of Knox is named after him.

During the 1950s the market garden industry grew. Scoresby became the Brussels sprout capital of Victoria. In 1959 subdivision of the market gardens began.,_Victoria
