Street Stories: Other Early Families
Jeans Street, Elizabeth Street, Hacker Street and Keaton Street
Miss Emma Jeans and Mrs Elizabeth Hacker were sisters who lived in close proximity to each other in Church Street. They successfully subdivided much of their land, naming the streets in their subdivisions after themselves. Jeans Street, Elizabeth Street and Hacker Street all commemorate the sisters, as does Keaton Street, Keaton being the name of Mrs Hacker’s home.
