Lord Edward James Henderson was appointed the first governor of the island.

Control of the island of Palanai was ceded to the Commonwealth of Australia after Lord Henderson's death, in 1906. During World War 2, the Japanese invaded and took control of much of the island. The city of Henderson, however, was left intact, as Australian forces managed to hold the town, keeping the Japanese invaders to the jungle highlands and western beaches.
