The suburb name first appears on a plan drawn by surveyor James Warner on 6 October 1851; however, the origin of the suburb name is unknown. It was also known as Hungry Flats, as was a stop over for bullock teams that were transporting logs from Pine Mountain to Hancocks saw mill at North Ipswich. Brassall was a separate shire (Shire of Brassall) with its own council from March 1860 until 1 January 1917 when the area became part of Ipswich. The suburb was officially bounded and named in 1991. The Brisbane Valley railway line once passed through Brassall.
