History of Glenferrie Ward

In the 1840s, Peter Ferrie's property on the top of the Glenferrie Road and Toorak Road hill, became the name of the road which led to it.

The new Hawthorn municipality officially adopted the name in the early 1860s. The official name was also eventually adopted by Kew, where the road was known as Barkly, to honour the Victorian governor.

The new railway station on Glenferrie Road in the 1880s took the name permanently to that area. The station was first known as the Glenferrie Road station and like other stations, dropped the 'road' reference.

The name was then used for nearby businesses and a hotel.
