  1. I firmly believe Inverary St was named after the property owned by William McDonald (grocer), my great great grand father, on the corner of Concord and Paramatta Rds. He was instrumental in the building of St Marys Concord. He also owned an earlier property in Randwick called inverary Some refs:
    “Memories of Old Concord
    The Concord Recorder, Thursday, July 6, 1961.
    I would like to take you along Concord Road and describe what it was like 70 years ago. It terminated at Parramatta Road. The corner was just referred to as “the corner of the road”. Where it crosses Parramatta Road towards Strathfield it was called “Murphy’s Paddock”. There was a house on the corner owned by Mr. McDonald. On the corner of Alexander Street was a cottage owned by Mrs. Love. Alexander Street was called Cole’s Lane. Where Edward Street is was McDonald’s Cow Paddock.”

  2. To support this, the contract of sale for our property in Edward Street included a map of “McDonalds Estate” which showed the subdivisions of all land parcels along “McDonald Street” (now Edward Street) and Inverary St, perpendicular to “Church St” (now Lloyd George Ave) The land survey dated is May 1905, with W. Monie listed as the owner of the land.
