Why is This Street Named Pomona Place?
Pomona Place is named for Pomona, the Roman goddess of fruit trees, gardens and orchards as this was the location of the orchard for Tanilba House.
Lt William Caswell was one of the original grantees of land by the government. He was granted 50 acres to be known as Tenilba, Portion 56, Parish of Sutton, granted by Governor Ralph Darling.
Pomona Place is one of the 5 streets out of 24 named to recognise the local history of the area.
Use of Alliteration for Street Names
A feature of Henry Halloran’s developments and subdivisions was that street names were chosen to capture attention through their alliteration (the repetition of the beginning consonant sounds of nearby words), like Pomona Place, Rigney Road and Tilligerry Track.
