It seems what you want is a separate history for each of from/to prompts.
You can do this by the following settings:
(defvar query-replace-from-history nil)
(defvar query-replace-to-history nil)
(setq query-replace-from-history-variable 'query-replace-from-history)
(setq query-replace-to-history-variable 'query-replace-to-history)
`query-replace-from-history-variable' and `query-replace-to-history-variable'
are both defcustoms, but using Customize to set them doesn't make much sense,
because anyway you have to put code in .emacs declaring new history variables
