About Anson Road

Anson Road was named after Colonel (later Major) Archibald Edward Harbord Anson, the Lieutenant Governor of Penang from 1867 to 1871, and Acting Governor of the Crown Colony of the Straits Settlements in 1877. Anson Road in Singapore was also named after him. When it was created around 1877, Anson Road forms the old town limit at that time.
