Two streets have been named after famous Scottish families – Grant and Stuart Crescents. The Grants are a widespread family, although they seem to trace their ancestry back to a Norman invader as the name does not appear in Scotland until the 13th century. The Stuarts are an even more ancient family, taking their name from their stewardship of the lands of the lords of Brittany. They were the Royal family of Scotland from 14th century, and took the English throne in the 17th century. Although the Stuarts were displaced from the British throne their blood flows in many European royal families.
