The second in our series examining the history of Orange's street names looks at three street names which are no longer used.
Blackett Place in Glenroi was named after the first man to acquire property in the Orange area.
George Blackett arrived in Sydney from England as a free settler in 1823 and became superintendent of the Government Stock Establishment at Sydney's Rooty Hill.
He bought 760 acres to the east of Orange for 190 pounds in 1827 and adjoining 1280 acres in 1829. Mr Blackett later sold the land and never lived in Orange.
However when a link road was provided between Blackett Place and neighbouring Davidson Place the entire length became Davidson Court.
The history of the naming of Davidson Place is unclear with suggestions it was named after former governor Sir Walter Davidson, a former council engineer or an early surveyor.
Seeing as the road led to the front of the Orange cemetery is not surprising that it used to be named Cemetery Road.
The street's name was changed to Lone Pine Avenue to coincide with the planting of a small pine tree, grown from seed brought from the Gallipoli battlefield in Turkey after World War I.
The tree is believed to be a third-generation descendant from the original Lone Pine at Gallipoli, which was destroyed during the World War I battle as the Turks covered their trenches.
Orange's tree was planted in Robertson Park during the 1930s, but was later moved to the corner of Bathurst Road and what is now Lone Pine Avenue in 1939.
The tree has faced its own battles, having been cutback by Essential Energy workers to clear powerlines last year.
There is nothing like having a royal visit to have your street name upgraded.
Prince Street was originally called Lord Street, after George Lord who lived near Orange in 1837.
He became one of the first members of parliament in 1856.
However, his role as namesake was usurped with the visit to Orange in 1920 by Prince Edward, the Prince of Wales leading to the street name being changed.
It also helped avoid confusion with Lords Place, named after George's father.
