A Quite Difficult Question

Recommended Posts

When I lived in the Hillsborough Park area it was always said that these roads were named after the children of the family that lived in the big house that is now the library.

That's right, the Dixon family who lived at Hillsborough Hall. Originally the park attached to the hall stretched up to where Wadsley Lane runs along the top of those streets. They sold off the land in several parcels, and that area was sold for building land, and the roads named after the members of the family. There's a topic about it somewhere on here.
