Blanch Street should actually be named Blanche Street. [Blanche and Edith were the daughters of Dr Mahoney who married Eliza Reid and who owned a very large parcel of land (called Mahoney's paddock) which extended from Union Street east towards Hutchinson Road or further - to be followed up further for accuracy].
in the early 2000's Town of Gawler Council's attention was drawn to the incorrect spelling of the street name, but Mayor Tony Piccolo and Councillors concluded that to change it from Blanch to Blanche would cause a significant inconvenient expense for all concerned to alter their deeds etc, and so it was left as "Blanch".
Blanch Street has homes and buildings that are on the Contributory and Local Heritage listing for the Town of Gawler Heritage.
