STAMER STREET


SORRY FOT THE DELAY
The Stamer Baronetcy, of Beauchamp, Dublin, is a title in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom. It was created on 15 December 1809 for William Stamer, Lord Mayor of Dublin in 1809 and 1819. The Right Reverend Sir Lovelace Stamer, 3rd Baronet, was Suffragan Bishop of Shrewsbury from 1888 to 1905.

Several older streets in the neighbourhood (i.e., Richmond, Harrington, Lennox, Heytesbury and Camden) were named after British Viceroys. Newer streets were often named after the estates they were built on. Stamer Street, developed around 1880, was named after Sir William Stamer, Lord Mayor in 1809 and 1819 (a relative of his, Standish O'Grady, was killed in a duel in 1830 by Captain Smith from Portobello Barracks, who received twelve months for manslaughter).

Foundlings left at Harrington Street church were usually named after one of the surrounding streets. {I am not sure that I would like to have been named Stamer]
