Source of name

This is one of the streets that Lauchlan Hamilton named after features on a Pacific Coast admiralty chart.

Denman Street was named after Denman Island, which in turn was named after Rear Admiral Joseph Denman (1810-1874), the commander-in-chief of the Pacific station from 1864-1866.
