Burwood Road was so named because it runs through the suburb of Burwood which in turn is named after Burwood Lodge, a large house built in the 1880s by George Augustus King (1850 - 1922) an auctioneer who was born at Richmond near Burwood in new South Wales. The road is first mentioned in The Press in 1890. - Source: Christchurch City Libraries. Christchurch Street and Place Names.
