Lake Macquarie History

Thomas Street

Thomas Street is likely named after Thomas Gervase Alcock, whose land grant portion 65, was subdivided on 7 July 1891. Thomas Street was included in a 1927 land sale.

A part of an area in Dudley was colloquially known as "Frog Hollow." It was here that boys played soccer and cricket on the flat between Elizabeth and Thomas Street.
