Topic: Nursery Road, Christchurch

Topic type:

Nursery Road runs north from Ferry Road, crossing Tuam Street, to Cashel Street.

Nursery Road was named after the nursery on five and a half acres of land off Ferry Road owned by Andrew Duncan (1831 - 1880).

Andrew Duncan, son of George Duncan (1791- 1866), was the third mayor of Christchurch in 1869. Duncan’s Road does not appear in street directories but is shown on an 1879 map running between Ferry Road and Tuam Street only. Land for sale in Nursery Road "Cashel Street east" is advertised for sale in The Press in 1873. So it appears that Duncan's Road was incorporated into Nursery Road. Nursery Road first appears in street directories in 1885. - Source: Christchurch City Libraries. Christchurch Street and Place Names.
