Land was first granted in the area to Edward Hamersley in 1837. Its name is derived from that of Lockeridge House, a property built by his son, Samuel Hamersley, in 1874. Part of what is now Lockridge, which became the Pyrton Estate, was bought by the Western Australian government during the Soldier settlement scheme in the 1920s. In 1969, the State Housing Commission purchased 240 acres (97 ha) to begin residential development in the area. An urban renewal project was undertaken in the late 1990s.
