Bingo! Thanks Wiggy - yes Chuters Gardens. It has now been demolished but was part of The Lanes area according to www.brightonhistory.org.uk/streets/streets_c.html (via Google).

Thanks all :-)

Oh WOW!!   Nice to geto one right for a change - (even though I did change my mind and go with GG and Daisy!    :-[  ;))

Good evening,

Just for clarity some of the facts given in the links are incorrect in particular the brighton history link. Nos 10 to 18 were knocked down in 1933 to make way for the swimming pool (later an ice rink). Now Family Investments insurance company. Numbering in old Brighton was, still is, consecutive and not odd/even. So 10 to 18 was 9 properties, quite a large frontage.

Nothing to do with Churchill Square which was built in the 60s and does not come east as far as West st.

Chuters Gardens would not have been in the Lanes, they are to the east of West st by at least 2 streets. In the area bounded by East st, Ship st, North st and the Kings rd.

Yes, John you're right - not in The Lanes. It looks like those houses were demolished when West Street was widened in the 1920s/30s. If this picture is accurate they would've been just south of St Paul's, but not as far south as what is now the Odeon cinema. Little Russell Street was the next street south and where the rest of the family lived - I had always assumed it was round there as Russell Street car park occupies that are now...!

Good afternoon,

One glaring mistake in my previous post. The old odeon was immediately south of the church, now Family Investments. The sports hall/ice rink was south of that, now Premier inn.

If you look at that area on st view you can see the church and Family investments. Between them is a small garden area where no's 17, 18 and the passageway to the cottages was.

Good evening,

Found a map of the west st area. I've marked in red the St Pauls cloisters which is behind the gate in Jool's link.

In blue is Chuters Gdns, most of the small rds and passages are not named and those that are can't be read easily. The map unfortunately stopped before west st itself so the little jink at that end may not be totally accurate.

Fab! Thanks Jon and John :-)

The irony is after a little more research I think these guys are not my direct ancestors, but uncle and aunt, however both brothers had a daughter called Susannah, and lived a few roads apart so I'm sure they were on friendly terms!

Love local history though ;D
