Trusting the History Society won't mind, here's a pic from 1720

London and Middlesex / Re: St.Pancras, Middlesex in 1768

...which took longer to find than I expected

Paraphrasing a tad:

The area remained sparsely populated until the later C18th, as open country with a few scattered houses and wayside taverns. Dairy farms supplied milk for the metropolis and hay was grown for the capital's horses. Londoners used the area as a rural retreat, enjoying its country lanes, frequenting its tea gardens, or taking the waters at Pancras Wells beside the Fleet. There were few roads, mostly running South to North: the ancient road to Hampstead (now Hampstead Road), Gray's Inn Lane (now Pancras Road / St Pancras Way} and Maiden Lane (York Way) Fig Lane (Crowndale Road) provided the only East-West link. Haunted by highwaymen, the roads were regarded as dangerousw, especially after dark

from Streets of St Pancras, Somers Town & the Railway Lands from the Camden History Society

Think it was a spa at some point.

I have a book on St Pancras though, so I should look it up rather than guess

If you Google Hospital Database you should find what you want

Lincolnshire Archives have Clinical Records for your period.

York County Hospital Clinical Records start from 1900 so prob no use

(Assuming we're talking the County hospitals)

Yes, think so

You want

Household schedule number:   35
Piece:   1853
Folio:   494
Page Number:   10

or just search for Jane Alexander, keyword Rushton in the 1851

... apart from ignoring the black lines distinguishing the end of a household

Though that's probably because Charlotte Barrett doesn't have 'Head' in the Relationship column

Thanks, you're a star

So for future searchers Kings Arms Lane is pretty much Kingsley Road, Hounslow

Don'cha just hate it when posted links have become defunct.

Would anyone who saw it remember if Kings Arms Lane was towards the Osterley side of Heston?

I have a marriage at St Mary's Osterley where the couple gave their address as Kings Arms Lane

Thanks!

So the 1845/6 London trade directories will be at LMA.

I'm planning to visit in a couple of weeks, what do you actually want to know?
