- Named in 1871 James Symes and his wife, Annie, were with a party in a boat looking for a suitable cannery site.
- They found a likely looking place, but the shallowness of the water prevented them from landing the boat. Annie then waded ashore while somebody shouted, 'Annie will make it.'
- The first cannery on the Fraser River was subsequently built here, and the settlement was named Annieville.
