Thrale Road resident, Streatham

What a fantastic site this is! I've lived in Thrale Road, Furzedown (Streatham Park?) for the past eight years, and I've always been curious to know the history behind this unusual sounding name.

I live in a large detached house near to Boundary Corner at the end of Thrale Road. We have a fairly large garden at the rear with an ancient mulberry tree that probably dates back to Johnson's time! What a pity nothing remains of Streatham Place, but brilliant to see local history so lovingly traced and recorded!
