In 2009, at the nursery of David Austin Roses Limited, Bowlling Green Lane, Albrighton, England, Mr David Austin selected an unnamed seedling to be the mother and an unnamed seedling to be the father. The resulting seed was sown in January 2010, from which a number of seedlings grew. The best of these seedlings was then selected and from this plant, in July 2010, 8 buds were taken and grafted (using the ‘T’-budding method) onto Rosa Laxa root-stock outdoors. The following year, in 2011, the variety was considered good enough to be increased by grafting to 30 plants. Next year, in 2012, the increase was up to 200, and two years after that, in 2014, it was increased to 1,500. In 2016 the variety was increased by further budding to 5,000, sufficient budding for a commercial introduction in May 2017.

Inventors: Austin; David J. C. (Albrighton, GB)
This invention relates to a new and distinct variety of shrub rose plant named `AUSquaker`, which was originated from the cross-pollination of the two `unnamed` and unpatented seedlings of Rosa hybrida. ... the maternal parent is cream with a deep cupped bloom and upright growth, as opposed to the shallower rosettes and arching growth of `AUSquaker`. ... the paternal parent was apricot pink with upright growth, whereas `AUSquaker` is a rich apricot with yellow coloring and arching growth.
