Thornbury Avenue runs between Raymond and Howard Roads and is parallel to Hill Lane in Shirley. It was laid out in the early years of the 20th century on land that had previously belonged to the Atherley family. It was named in honour of Lady Isobel Howard, wife of Francis Henry Atherley. The Howard family seat was Thornbury Castle in Gloucestershire.
