Believed to be named after Frederick Sargenson, a member of the early landowning family. (See James Street) Frederick Street is shown on a 1939 plan, but could have been named earlier, (the Council plan could not be located). Lake Macquarie Past and Present mentions Frederick Street in Charlestown existing in 1876.
Charlestown Public School is in Frederick Street.
