Elizabeth and Albert Pallett, considered community pioneers, ran a market garden from their five-acre property, with all produce sold locally or a few kilometres north at Fremantle Markets.

Their son George also went on to work at the local abattoir.

Great grandson John Maiorana said having a street named after his family was a unique way to honour their time in the suburb.

‘My great grandparents worked very hard and significantly contributed to the Spearwood community, setting a good example for their future and extended family,’ he said.

‘I know my mother was passionate about having the Pallett family remembered and it’s wonderful to see her dream fulfilled with a street at Eliza Ponds named after her grandparents.’
