Historical Notes – Ivy Avenue itself is first listed in street directories in 1906, with Nos1 through 4 and 23 through 30 built (although only 4 were occupied by this point). The first resident of the street (at No1) was Richard Rickards, whose occupation is listed as portmanteau maker (in this case, a maker of suitcases whereas in France it would have meant a maker of coat trees/hooks/hatstands etc). Looking further back into the past, the Ivy Avenue area was built up on farmers fields named Lower Ranscombe or Stonybridge.
