I wonder if the" 1in1" would be the ground floor room of a one up one down true back to back house. Often a different family would occupy each floor. There may have been a crude cellar and a loft too. These houses were often in courts.
In John St Angel Meadow 19 people lived at No 10. Not all related.!!!!
Often more than one family occupied the same room, some sleeping whilst others worked and vice versa.
Such poverty and dreadful conditions.Viktoria.

Thanks Victoria, that helps explain what happened. The baby Charles was born on 2 June 1848 and was buried on 1 August. He had a sister born a year later who also died within 3 months as well.  By 1851 the family were living in a cellar beneath a jewellers shop on King Street, Manchester, where the father worked as a porter, so that was a step up for them!  The elder brother of the babies became a solicitors clerk so he really did climb out of the gutter didn't he!

I have spoken with people from Angel Meadow and been amazed at what a good family life they had.
No doubt through  the efforts of wonderful mothers. How they managed  in such a confined space is amazing . But really warm memories were recalled.
And as you have related ,many made good, so to speak, and had training and got good jobs and others with more modest occupations were hard working and to come from that area known for vice and crime  to be decent citizens is  a miracle in itself.
Thankyou for your thankyou! :)Viktoria.

I would think it would be house no 1 in Court number 1. You could have house 2 in Court 1 or house 1 in Court 2 etc.

Irene, you have already confirmed it I know but that is just my thought. ;)

Thank you heywood, that rings a bell with me, I'm sure I've seen addresses listed like that in Liverpool on a census.  So, final decision on the address is house no 1, in Court no 1, John Street. Thank you heywood and everyone
