Everard Avenue, BR2

Place Name

Named after Everard Hambro, a banker who from AD1880 lived at Hayes Place, a former house on whose estate the road was later built. Following his death in AD1925 his son Eric decided to dispose of the estate for building, although the need for an improved infrastructure for this rural area meant delays. It was eventually developed as the Hayes Place Estate by Henry Boot, a Sheffield based company. Roads such as Chatham Avenue and Hambro Avenue were named after figures associated with the house’s history. The property survived until AD1933.
