The "Lady Roads" on the Hill House Estate :: Shared Description

In the summer of 1870, Isaac Bugg Coaks > LinkExternal link became heavily involved with the collapse of the Hudson and Harvey Bank, caused by the bank's principal partner, Sir Robert Harvey > LinkExternal link who had used the bank's money to speculate on French stocks and consequently shot himself (in July 1870) when the bankruptcy was revealed. Coaks, the liquidator's solicitor, managed to acquire some of Harvey's land in Thorpe Hamlet. This land, which he subsequently developed, is known as the Hill House estate, named after Hill House > LinkExternal link and referred to locally as "The Lady Roads", because six of the new roads were named after his six daughters Beatrice, Florence, Marion, Primrose, Ella and Ethel. The estate, located on sloping ground and extending over an area of about 14 acres, is bounded by Telegraph Lane East in the north-east, the Rosary Cemetery in the south-east, St Leonard's Road in the north-west, and Rosary Road in the south-west.
