Stafford, a post World War II residential suburb, is eight km north of central Brisbane. Its southern border is Kedron Brook and the north is bordered by Stafford Heights, along a line running either way from Stafford Heights primary school.
Originally known as Happy Valley, the district was noted for agistment, dairying, noxious trades and extractive industries with Chinese market gardens beginning in 1857. Access between Brisbane and Happy Valley improved in 1870 when the Blackall bridge was built on Webster Road to cross Kedron Brook. Proximity to the brook led to tanneries, a wool scour, dairies and a fellmongery (for processing sheep skins, whereby flesh particles were removed by maggots). A quarry and brickworks were also operative by the 1880s, and it is supposed that the association of Stafford, UK with clay products may have inspired the change of name of the district. In any event, in 1886 when the post office and a school in Collier Street were opened, they were named Stafford, and Happy Valley Road was named Stafford Road.
Stafford was decidedly rural and industrial, a convenient agistment area for livestock destined for the Newmarket saleyards (1877-1931), driven down Enoggera or Grange Roads. By 1896 there was a local deputation about the pollution of Kedron Brook.
