Weybridge Lane

Weybridge Lane, which runs off of Weybridge Road with an offshoot connecting it to the end of Hancock Road, was originally called Blake Circle. It remains a private road today, unlike Blake, Hancock, Lowell, Somerset, Stanton, Welland, and Weybridge Road, all of which were developed as private streets but became town streets in 1927 and 1928.

Name Origin:
 The origin of the name Weybridge Lane (and Weybridge Road) is unknown. There is a Weybridge, Vermont about 100 miles northwest of Brattleboro. When Arthur Blake's grandfather John Welland Blake was Brattleboro postmaster from 1792 to 1793, Weybridge may have been part of his district, but I have not been able to find a closer connection. There is also a Weybridge, England, close to London, but I have not found a connection to the Blake family.
