Edendale Residents: 1900s

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This page includes lists of residents from Edendale from various sources. It is given in date order.

Edendale was included as a separate suburb location in the Wises Directory in 1907 for the first time. That year, a stretch of the Mount Albert and Epsom Road was renamed Edendale Road.

Prior to 1907, residents of Edendale (apart from those listed below who lived in Mt Albert and Epsom Rd) were included in the list of Kingsland residents, with the location ‘Edendale’ added after the name and occupation. These have been extracted and are included below.

Note that names and occupations are transcribed as they are given in Wises’s directory. Details for the same person changed at times, e.g. a person listed as Benton one year, and Renton in another. Sometimes a word can be difficult to transcribe e.g. an occupation may be currier or carrier.

The name of this road is confusing because later Sandringham Rd had this name. Up to 1912, Edendale Rd refers to part of what is now Balmoral Rd, to the intersection of St Lukes Rd.
