    Default River Streets

    Hello Ross - These are just the remnants of a whole complex - the name
    'Close' says it all. The ones that used to be were really streets, some quite
    long. Here are all those I can remember offhand:

    Medlock, Leven,Nith, Dart, Stour, Doon, Avon, Orwell, Tawd ,Tyne

    Some of these are again mere remnants, others have gone altogether, Orwell still exists as a proper street.

    Hi all

    On receiving information on Tuesday on my maternal grandfather, George T. Matchett's World War I service for a presentation I am giving this coming Saturday in Philadelphia at a military history meeting, I was surprised and delighted to learn that he lived for a time in one of the "Welsh" streets in the Dingle.

    Specifically, here is the information I received from my researcher on my grandfather joining the Territorial army cavalry in 1913:

    George Thompson Matchett

    Attestation papers:

    Name as above and born in Toxteth Park, Liverpool, Lancashire.
    He was a British Subject aged 21 years.
    He was employed as a clerk with Coggins and Griffiths, stevedores, at Robert Street.
    Home address: 3, Powis Street, High Park Street.
    He was joining the Territorial Force of Lancashire for 4 years to serve in the Lancashire Hussars [Yeomanry].
    Signed by Geo T Matchett [witness illegible] on 1st May 1913

    My grandad was later transferred in 1916 to the Lancashire Fusiliers and would serve the remainder of the war in a service batallion of the Fusiliers out in Macedonia helping to convoy supplies to the battlefront from Salonika (present-day Thessalonika), Greece, where the joint British-French expeditionary force was based.

    I had known he had lived in Beaufort Street and Merlin Street in Toxteth Park, and was educated at the Harrington Board School. That he had lived in Powis Street was new information to me. Is Merlin Street also counted as a "Welsh Street"?

    Thought some of you might be interested in the above!

    Chris

    Has your researcher sent you actual copies of his Service Record documents?
    If not they are available on the Ancestry site. If you want them let me know and I will PM them to you. They show a later address in Garston.

    Default Poet streets

    I went to live in Spencer Street off Marsh lane all the Streets had poets names Scot, Shelley, Grey, etc I sometimes wonder if it was that that gave me the inspiration to read. The road that ran between was Peel Street Well do yeah ken John Peel with his coat so grey.Funny he wasn't a poet though!
    Oh as I was young and easy in the mercy of his means,
    Time held me green and dying
    Though I sang in my chains like the sea.

    I noticed some were being repeated. I have a definitive list which is in the Liverpool Street names book which I have added new inclusions to. The Paul Bolger Edwardian A-Z books also throw up some that are now abolished too.

    Not so much unusual, but there are loads of streets that have me wondering 'why did they give it that name?', - 'who was he?' I've often wondered what the process of naming streets is, who decides which names to put forward and who has the final pick.
    There is a street off High Park St - opposite the 'Welsh' streets - called Vronhill Street, where'd that name come from?

    Together with North Hill and South Hill Streets in Liverpool 8 there are these: Foxhill St, Grinshill St, Fernhill St, Vronhill St, Pimhill St. Can't find anything that readily springs up regarding the origins of Vronhill st. Will keep looking.

    I found this whilst looking though:
