Cambridge Street-Names: Their Origins and Associations

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Oct 26, 2000 - History - 159 pages
1 Review
This book draws on the great wealth of associations of street names in Cambridge. It is not a dictionary, but it provides a series of entries on such topics as the Reformation, George IV and his wife, twentieth-century British scientists, businessmen, Elizabethan times, medieval Cambridge, mayors, millers, and builders. It includes hermits and coal merchants, field marshals and laundresses, martyrs and bombers, unscrupulous politicians and the founder of a Christian community, Cromwell and Newton, an Anglo-Saxon queen and the discoverer of Uranus--all people who lived in or often visited Cambridge.

An entertaining read for Cambridge residents. Some sections relating to the Barnwell Priory appear to have been taken verbatim from A History of the County of Cambridge and the Isle of Ely: Volume 2; edited by L.F. Salzman. It was published in 1948.
