The name Canning first appears in a reference to “Canning River” when an allocation of 250,000 acres (approximately 100,000 hectares) of land was made in 1828 to Thomas Peel.  Named after George Canning, a British statesman and the Prime Minister in 1827, it continues in the names of Cannington, Canning Highway, Canning Vale and City of Canning.
