Why so many Wilburys in Hove?

by Simon Stockwell 21 July 2017

Having recently moved in to the area, I am intrigued as to why so many of the streets are named Wilbury?

There is a Wilbury Avenue, Gardens, Grange, Grove, Lodge, Mansions, Road, Stables & Villas.

I assume that there must have been a grand estate at one time or perhaps an eponymous Victorian builder.

I will be grateful to learn the history.

Thank you in advance,
