As you say - No Wellhouse Square listed on the 1891 map of Leeds!

Well House Square is/was in Potter Newton, Leeds, just off Potternewton Lane. The impression I get is that it was somewhere behind no 40 (ish). That number doesn't exist any more. The old Shoulder of Mutton (now Inkwell Arts) is no 31, but the property opposite is 74. I'm guessing therefore that Well House Square was on that side of the road, towards the traffic lights. Probably where those little courts of new houses are.

Isabel Newill is at no 3 in 1901, with the Ethel, Willie, Mabel and Maud plus a visitor, Nellie Harrison. No ME that night. Could Mary Elizabeth be living-in in service anywhere? I've tried a lot of variations and sneaky tricks but I can't find her. What address does William give for the banns?

Except for the more recently-built (just) ones backing onto Roundhay Rd between the Astoria and Tesco's.

See my other post - searching the 1901 by address turned up Well House Square in Potter Newton.

Perhaps my earlier post giving the same information was invisible  ;) ;D

What address does William give for the banns?

William gives 43 Sackville Street, but the only William Dobson at that address in 1901 is enumerated as aged 66.

ADDED: The witnesses to the marriage are Thomas James West & Mary Ann West, and going back to 43 Sackville Street shows the head as Thomas J West & his wife... not Mary Ann but Sarah Jane  :-\

And on the 1901 census there are fourteen houses on it, just off Potternewton Lane. I know. I've read the census pages. Do you think it might have been built between 1891 and 1901, demolished probably mid-to-late late 20th century?

Thanks for the help everybody, you are all so good at this.  :o

How do you turn up a street in your search results? I tried putting the street name into Ancestry and got nothing.

I did think she might be on the census as her in service place, but I have also failed to turn her up and I've tried a few combinations.

Oh well at least I know where the house was now.

Unfortunately Ancestry doesn't have this facility.
