Street Names: Juliett Street, Enmore

The society often recieves emails from people doing private research about family or their homes. We recently were asked how Juliett Street in Enmore got it's name.

Juliett Street can be seen on an 1841 subdivision map of Enmore.

It is assumed that the street was named after Isaac Josephson's wife Juliet (nee Hanson). Her brother was Romeo Hanson!

Randolp Bedford's memoirs of the 1870s describe it as a 'highly respectable street of churchgoers'; it is spelled as Juliet  in the 1939 Lands Department map and Juliett by the present Marrickville Council.
