Need help finding an old Weymouth Street
« on: Monday 21 August 17 23:31 BST (UK) »
QUESTION ANSWERED
-------------------------

Hello all

This is my first post

I am trying to locate an old street name in Weymouth.  The street name given on the Census looks like St Paul's Terrace, and this is from an 1891 Census.

It's actually entered as "S Pauls Ter"

Can anyone help please?

Welcome to RootsChat  :)

Looking at the nearby street/terrace names on the census and this thread on another site St Pauls Terrace was part of Abbotsbury Road http://www.rootschat.com/links/01kkd/   

This is an old map but it doesn't show the terraces on Abbotsbury Road http://maps.nls.uk/view/106012191#zoom=4&lat=4524&lon=10980&layers=BT

Excellent.  Thank you. 

Looking at the map, I can see St Paul's Church so it's a reasonable assumption that one of the groups of houses around it will be St Paul's Terrace.  I'll have a look in Street View.

Thanks again
