Dail Whiting advised that Peter Ongley’s ancestors lived towards the top of the present Bow Road, where Mac Clarke’s barber shop used to be, next door to Boorman’s butcher’s shop.
In the mid 19th century, the top part of the road was known as ‘The Street’ right down to about the present ‘Hillside’ development, after which the road was called Bow Road.
