Queen's Row
« on: Wednesday 14 February 18 07:54 GMT (UK) »
I have found the location of Queen's Row, London, on an 18th century map very near (south of) the Queen's Palace.  It looks like Queen's Row was located at or near where the Royal Mews are now.  There is a modern-day Queen's Row near Camberwell Road.  I would appreciate some guidance please to find out more about the historic Queen's Row, particularly in the early 19th century.  J

Do you know about the Charles Booth maps?
Try searching "historic London poverty maps".

Thank you.  I had a look.  In 1775 it was Queens Row.   In 1898 according to Booth it was a section of the road named Buckingham Palace Road (between Princes Row and Palace Street) shown in the key as being "middle class/well to do".  I have a reference in 1821 of someone living in Queen's Row so the name change would have occurred some time after 1821.   J

....... after 1821......

Do the census returns give you anything?

Hadn't considered those - this is a very new exploration.  The subject died in 1821 aged 50 but census returns may help with other family members - though a lot could change in families in the 20 years leading up to the 1841 census.  It would certainly help identify when the name of the Row changed.  J

Is it definitely the one in Pimlico that you are interested in? Lockie's Topography of London (1810) lists 10 locations named Queen's Row https://goo.gl/qqTwib
