The trend to name streets after British royal and military figures who travelled far and wide was big in the 1800s even though they never came anywhere near Orange.
Admiral and Lord George Anson (1697-1762) is perhaps the most travelled person to have a street named after him in Orange.
The noted British sailor, who became Lord of the Admirality and a member of parliament, circumnavigated the globe in the 1740s.
The voyage was a bit of a disaster early on as he lost five of his six ships and many of the crew until things took a dramatic upturn in 1743.
They captured a Spanish trading ship laden with silver and the prize money paid to him made Lord Anson a rich man for life.
Apart from Anson Street, and a few other places, eight Royal Navy warships have been named after him.
Sir Henry Clinton (1730-1795) saw a lot of battles in his time.
The British army officer and member of parliament was commander-in-chief in the American War of Independence.
Apart from England he lived in the US and Gibraltar.
Near the end of his career he was made Governor of Gibraltar but died before taking up the post.
He and wife Harriet Carter had five children. She died just eight days after the last birth.
In 1949 Orange historian William Folster wrote in the Central Western Daily of how Sir Thomas Mitchell had named March Street after "a renowned beauty of England, the Countess of March."
His story told of Sarah Cadogan's arranged marriage to a child aged just 18 months.
However, according to Wikipedia, more recent information indicates she was 13 and he, Charles Lennox the Earl of March was 18 years, when the marriage, to settle a gambling debt between their fathers, took place in 1719.
Mr Folster said they went their separate ways but three years later he saw a woman at a theatre and asked who she was. "She was his wife," wrote Mr Folster and their marriage began.
The Earl is known for his patronage of cricket while she is best remembered as the mother of the four Lennox sisters. One of which, Sarah Lennox, nearly became Queen of England.
