Mary Street

This street was named after the second wife of Sir Henry Copeland who was Mary the daughter of James Beecroft brewer of Malton Yorkshire, England. 


The earliest occupant is Charles L Little who resided there between 1914-1916. Between 1917 up to at least 1933 it was called “Wisbech” and occupied by Charles H Stanger.

It was occupied from the late 1950s until 1962 by the Norrie family and then from 1962 until 1984 by George and Ruth Baur and their daughters. George, a forester, called the home “Tallawang,” being the botanical name of the angophora – a significant specimen of which occupies the backyard.
