The streams were a good source of food and used to attract many settlers. The suburb first became known as “Dedwood”, however, the unattractive name put people off moving to the area and it was swiftly changed to Ponsonby. The suburb has been home to some of the New Zealand All Blacks team and many revolutionaries and creative artists.
