The name ‘Melemonger Street’ is no longer used. What was Melemonger Street is now ‘Greencroft Street’.
The road is on the eastern edge of the city centre.
I was puzzled by the meaning of ‘Melemonger’ for some time. ‘Monger’ is fairly clear – it means dealer or seller, as in the current words fishmonger or ironmonger.
I did wonder whether ‘mele’ might be connected with the French word ‘mel’ meaning ‘honey’, but it seems that the meaning is slightly more prosaic. I found a reference to the road on Google Book Search, where the quoted book said that ‘Melemonger’ means ‘seller of meal’.().
I’ve not been able to retrieve the reference from Google book search again, I’m afraid.
