Curious...
All I can think of for the Lloyd George record is that the numbering has been done from the wrong end of the terrace - No 1 entered in the valuation as No 8.
Easy to check, I suppose, but I don't have access to the records - where did you get it, Newburychap?
Berks - Appleton Barlow Bartholomew Carter/Cook Corderoy Coxhead Froud Fryzer Griffin Head Noke Richmond Salter Sawyer Shrimpton Sidwell Stratton Wernham
South Bucks - Miller Mitchell Horton
Cornwall - John Henry Grigg born c 1839 where?
Hants - Hine/Hind
South Oxon - Barlow Fryzer Simmonds Toby
Suffolk - Philpott Stone
Surrey Edwards Knight Lanaway

The LG agrees with the directory for No 6 (T Smith in both) and No 7 (Alfd Barlow & A Barlow).  LG has No 8 empty (Mrs Westall is there for several years in the directories).  All four owned by Richard Ravenor. It doesn't give occupants for 1 to 4 - it seems that the owner did not return his form. 

The Lloyd George books are in the National Archives (IR 58).

Hello Gadget,

1911 address is 5 Pelican Terrace

Elisha's death certificate is 5 Pelican Terrace (11 May 1916)

I don't have Hannah's death certificate, but her entry in Berks Burials (23 Feb 1912) gives Pelican Terrace (no number)

cheers
Steve

I thought I would update with a happy outcome.

West Berks Museum have sent me a photo of Pelican Terrace taken in 1961; it shows the whole row from the Pelican Lane end.

There are some extra drainpipes and cables for (presumably) electricity, and the front wall has gone, but it is clearly the same row as in my photograph. The brickwork matches, as do open sash windows and the lintels, including the door ones which are slightly lower than ones above the downstairs windows.

I canít post the Museumís photo because of copyright but the reference is NEBYM1995 72.28 for any local folk who want a peek.

So my photo does not show Elizabeth Barlow nee Coxhead in the 1930ís Ė as I had always thought Ė but her mother-in-law Hannah Barlow nee Carter Cook (my 2xg grandmother) in 1910/11.

Many, many thanks to everyone who helped track down Pelican Terrace.
