Prince Street was formerly named Lord Street in honour of the Hon. George Lord, who lived on Bletchington in the earliest days of settlement in Orange in 1837.Son of Simeon Lord, he became one of the first Members of Parliament when responsible government was realised in 1856. He sat in the Legislative Assembly as Member for the Bogan, and later was appointed to the Upper House. He held Ministerial office as Treasurer, and became a leading figure in financial circles.The name was changed from Lord Street in the early 1920s, apparently to avoid confusion with Lord's Place.

This change of name was inspired by the visit to Orange in 1920 by H.R.H. Edward, Prince of Wales.
