The Fairway and Storr's Lane:  Under Development

Rather surprisingly the land now comprising these 2 quiet thoroughfares hosted at least 3 dwellings which farmed about 15 small fields in the 1840’s. The entire area was taken up thus, except for one small piece (which was left as wasteland, presumably because it was deemed unfit for any purpose). 

During the 20th century the developers moved in, and we now have The Fairway and Storr’s Lane.  The origin of the name of The Fairway is fairly easy to work out. But why is Storr’s Lane called Storr’s Lane?  And what have chickens got to do with it?
