The town started as a post office to serve the farms in the district and was opened in 1920. It was named after the first Postmaster, John Voorendijk’s wife, Sannie.
In 1928, the settlement was named Roosville in honour of Tielman Roos, a member of Parliament for Lichtenburg, but the name proved to be unpopular and the original name was restored in 1952.
