Kingsley

A northern suburb of Perth north of Duncraig and Greenwood, and south of Joondalup. Apparently the first landowner in this area was a Mr William Shenton who originally hailed from Winchester in the U.K. The town of Kingsley is very near Winchester thus this name was suggested and approved in 1974. Many street names in the area have very English origins, such as Shepherd's Bush Dr, Twickenham Dr, Coventry Ct, Richmond Pl, Golders Green La., and others
