Chapman Street is a very short street near the eastern end of Summer Hill and may have been a subdivision of some of the original lots from the Underwood Estate of 1878 when it was created just a year later in 1879 and many of the dwellings were constructed not long after this.  The street still has many Victorian houses, terraces and semi-detached cottages
