It looks like Exchange station was built on this site in later years. However when you look at the 1844/49 maps I wonder if your Gill's Court is the one shown with no name marked on it. See the attached map.

Many thanks for that Mike. You could well be right about this being Gill's Court. I noticed that at the end of Hardings Buildings there is what looks to be "Hardings Buildings Police Station" - this is interesting as my ancestor was a Policeman for a time. Maybe he worked at this station. I think I need to visit Salford Local History Library the next time I am in the area.

This 1844-49  Manchester Salford map is one of several maps I have on disks and paper that were donated to me by various Rootsweb members. They were given to me to back up my knowledge of the area that I had grown up in the central part of Manchester. They have proven time and time again to be of great assistance in cross referencing locations and helping people to locate addresses in their family tree search. But I still need to pore over each map inch by inch to locate streets etc. There is no magic street directory. You hunt for clues in birth certificates , church locations etc and census records.

Thanks Toronto, I didn't realise it was your own personal map. I thought you might have an address of my relatives, who's address I got from a Census.

Hi Red,
There is nothing stopping me from looking. What information can you give me from the census ? It would be a pleasure to look this up and copy it for you.

Hi

thanks for your reply. The address I am looking for from the 1841 census is, Smith Street, Greengate, Salford.
Also, 1851 census has them living at Hargreaves Street. How far do you think Hargreaves Street is from The New Bailey Prison ??? ;D My rellie was in there 1851, and his family where at Hargreaves Street.

Thank you for your time  :)

Chirp, it could have been your rellie locking mine up.  :o ;D

Bodger,
please show some surrounding street names, or a church name. it would help narrow the search or at least show the area it was located in. Cheers
