Lake Macquarie History

Kyneton Street

Kyneton Street was part of William Cobbins' land and named after his wife Elizabeth's birthplace. This was in the Parklands Estate subdivision in 1936 held by Lang Wood Pty Ltd (Source: "From Bahtahbah to Belmont" by Peter Murray). Kyneton is a town in Victoria named after the Village of Kineton in England. Gold-diggers in 1851 knew of the place as Kyneton. Kyn is an archaic word for 'cow'.
