Jeppo’s Lane


Written as Jeppa‘s Lane in this 1866 map:

The spelling ending in an ‘a’ shown in the 1866 map suggests that ‘Jeppa’ was a variation of ‘Jaffa’, and so possibly named after Napoleon’s Siege of Jaffa in 1799. Pure speculation though.

Mentioned in Mitcham Histories: 4 Lower Mitcham , on pages 9,33,53,54,70,137
