Notes: Waterview Streets

Notes From John Davenport's "Street Names of Auckland" 1990 Arlington Street, Pt Chevalier- This is the name of a town in Devon, of a London Street, and of the site of America's national cemetery on the Potomac River. Alford Street, Waterview - In 1932 a major review of street names took place which resulted in this name being altered from Albert. New names usually had the same initial letter or letters, otherwise there seems to be no other reason for this title. It is however, a suburb in Lincoln, England. Alverston Street, Waterview - In 1932 new names had to be found for many Auckland Streets in order to avoid duplication. This name was chosen to replace Alexandra Street. See under Alford. Cadman Avenue,Green lane (Street), Waterview (Avenue)- At least two people with this name feature in Auckland's history. Jerome Cadman (18161879) was a builder and contractor, being closely connected with the construction of Queen's Wharf. He was also a member of the Provincial Council.

Named after a local family which had close associations in Beach haven area for over a century. Albert Hadfield was actively involved in local body affairs in the 1920's while his father Thomas had been on the local council in 1888. The name Hadfield also occurs in Waterview where the street was once called Hillcrest Avenue. Oakley Avenue, Pt Chevalier - Named after Edwin Oakley, a prominent civil engineer at the turn of the 20th century, who was involved in the city's early search for an adequate water supply.
