Weybridge Road

Weybridge Road, as described in the entry on Somerset Road, above, was originally part of Blake Road East, evolving from main pathway into the Blake Estate from Washington Street. It had been renamed by 1925.

Name Origin: The origin of the name Weybridge Road (and Weybridge Lane) 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.
