Who was Amy Robsart?

If you take a stroll around Parkside and Unley, you will see street names which are familiar to those with an interest in English history.

Robsart Street is named after Amy Robsart, the wife of Sir Robert Dudley (Dudley Street) who was the Earl of Leicester (Earl of Leicester Hotel). Together they lived at Kenilworth Castle (Kenilworth Road and Castle Street). Nineteenth Century author Sir Walter Scott gave his name to Scott Street and the title of his first novel ‘Waverley’ to the Waverley Hotel, now known as The Unley. How many more can you find?
