Bennett Street, Mortlake

Probably to honour William Christopher Bennett (1824-1889), Engineer
and Surveyor, who arrived in New South Wales in 1855 and accepted a position in the Public Service.

He helped to form the Department of Roads and later became Commissioner for Main Roads – which probably is the reason for there being 32 “Bennett” avenues, streets and roads throughout Sydney metropolitan area.
