Young Street

Named in honour of Sir John Young, lst Baron Lisgar (1807-1876). A British Politician, he was appointed to become Governor of New South Wales in 1861, and in that capacity is reported as having been “a good Governor, wise and generous”.

He departed Sydney in 1867, and the country town of “Lambing Flat” was re-named “Young” in his honour.
