The road was formerly known as Salat Road (Silat or Selat), the Malay term for "straits" or "Ei Lin". The former Salat Road was part of a nutmeg plantation that flourished on Duxton Hill till the late 1850s. The Malay road name was changed by the municipal commissioners in March 1858 in honour of the British heroes in the Indian Mutiny in 1857. House number 147 was the home of Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew's grandfather, Lee Hoon Leong, who bought the house in 1920 for $25,000. Lee lived in the house for a few years with his parents and grandfather.
