In 1840 James Watson purchased the largest portion of the recently subdivided Warringal Village and named the land Rose Anna Farm after his wife, Elizabeth Anna Rose. After being charged with fraud in 1843, Watson was forced to begin selling off portions of his land. Eventually, with the construction of the Hurstbridge railway line in 1901 and 1902 the land continued to be subdivided for residential development, evolving into the Rosanna we know today.
