1891 and 1881 census
« on: Sunday 04 February 18 14:13 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

I can't find the 1891 and 1881 census for the address 209 Queen's Road, Battersea, London. I want to know who lived at that address then. I am tracing the history of Battersea (my home town) and am looking at certain houses. I also want to know when 209 Queen's Road was built. I have the 1901 and 1911 census for that address but no others, can anyone help? Thank you!

Hi,

Welcome to RootsChat  :)

If it's of any help in 1896 a Mrs Ellen Fry, music teacher is living at 209 Queen's Road, Battersea.

Hi JJ

Thank you very much for that, great help! Is she living alone or with any others? Also is there any earlier references for that house? Thank you once again!

see reply 8 for link
Have a look around & find Queens Road, you may be able to see how many houses had been built at that time.

PS Welcome from me too!!

ADDED: Has the road been demolished/renamed? I can't find it on a modern map.

Looking at earlier census for Queen's Road it is a bit difficulty to define the correct house as many of the households are just recorded as Queen's Road with no numbers.

With regard to Mrs Ellen Fry, the directories does not list other occupants.

London Electoral Registers for 1905 has an Alfred Lloyd living at 209 Queen's Road.

Have you found any of the houses in Queens Road in 1881 and 1891?

If so, have you looked at the front pages to see what route the enumerator took,and also just worked through all the pages until you get to the end?

In 1881 Battersea District 57 seems to stop at 21 Queens Road, and then moves into Queens Crescent and other roads such as West Street and South Street.

Can you tell us blondyface where 209 is? What roads is it near the junction of & is it south of Lavender Hill or north? ADDED: Queens Road only north of Lavender Hill, my mistake

So this is the area in the 1890s
http://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/#zoom=17&lat=51.4710&lon=-0.1492&layers=168&b=1
quite a few gaps with no housing on the east side.

ADDED: Thanks for the pointer to Queenstown Road, Carol.
