Persimmon named the road to the north Braeburn Gardens.

Bizarre considering the Braeburn Apple originated in New Zealand and this orchard stocked english variety of apples.

This web site wrote to Persimmon pointing out this anomaly and suggested a more appropriate name

First Edition 25 inch Ordnance Survey of 1885
