A weekend in Portchester

Was curious about a new road called Caer Peris View in Portchester, Dad found info about it on this Portchester Castle site explains that Caer Peris means Portchester Castle, it's named after a guy called Perrex who declared himself king. There's also some mention of Cymbeline aka Old King Cole, though no connection to the Coles in our family...
