"I was born in this house in 1941, I sold it in 1998. 
In September 1939 my grandparents purchased this property, their name was Forster, it was then left to my mother, Mrs Nellie Clare, and  then to me, Peter Clare when my mother passed away in 1997. 
The original name was ETRUSCAN VILLA, LORD STREET as it was named by Shirey, later it was called AMBURET, LORD STREET, later it became 367 Etruria Road Etruria and then 45 Etruria Old Road."
