Newington Road appears as Emily Street as early as 1869 and still appeared as Emily Street till the 1880’s. Sometime before 1903 most of the street had been named Newington Road. This clearly shows the influence of Newington College. Newington House was established in 1863 at Silverwater and moved to Stanmore in 1880 after the construction of the Founders Building.

The subdivision plans on the right show the change in the name of the street and provide an indication of the times when the houses were constructed.
