Moon Street, Aberystwyth
« on: Wednesday 07 December 05 17:48 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone tell me where Moon Street was in Aberystwyth?   Sounds like fun  ;D.   It was there in 1871 but I can't remember a street of that name.
By the way I wasn't there in 1871 so it's no good looking for me in the Census ;)
Cheers Dave

I think it may be MOOR Street, not Moon Street.  I have ancestors from Moor Street, Aberystwyth.

Iolanthe, welcome to RootsChat.   Why didn't I think of Moor Street  ???
This was, I believe, the old name for Cambrian Street which links Terrace Road to Thespian Street (not a million miles from where I was born).
Thanks for that.
Cheers Dave
