At the turn of the century, this area of Bath came under Englishcombe in postal directories (which also included Twerton Hill and Odd Down) and was classified as Sladebrook. Built on land mainly used as farmland and market gardens,the street name could well originate from Ivy Cottages - the only terrace in the immediate locality before the southward expansion of Oldfield Park in the Edwardian era. 1902 occupation records for Ivy Cottages show four gardeners, a labourer, a wheelwright, a bricklayer and a dressmaker amongst the 8 houses.
Addresses for the area at the time do also show a link to Australia - a Henry F Mitchell had a house in Sladebrook named "Woollamoolloo" which is a common misspelling of "Woolloomooloo", a bay in Sydney Harbour.
Development on Ivy Avenue initially started in 1901 - 1902 although, by 1911, only 30 houses on the road were occupied. The address at the time was Ivy Avenue, off Lymore Road.
