2nd Marquis Breadalbane
Argyle Street appeared on the 1857 map of Stratford but was then called Avon Street. There was also an Argle Street on the 1857 map, but was later called Norfolk Street. Because there were two Avon Streets on the map, the Argyle name was moved from Norfolk to the present-day Argyle Street.
Argyle Street was named for the County of Argll on the west coast of Scotland, bounded partly on the east by Perthshire.
A number of Scottish immigrants coming to the Perth County area were from Argyll, and the name was Anglicized to Argyle for the purposes of street naming. The street was probably named by Scottish settlers. By Stanford Dingman Several Scottish families locating in the area came from Breadalbane.
