Title: 105 Stockwell Street Glasgow Lanark 1881 Census
Post by: VICTORIA on Sunday 30 January 05 11:07 GMT (UK)
Would like to view 1881 census of 105 Stockwell Street Lanark.GRO Ref Vol 644-7 En Dst 8 Page 3
 I believe the people who were living there may be relatives of my ancestors.
Living there were:
Thomas Sandford M 27 Glasgow Lanark
Boarder Actor Comedian.
Clara Sandford M 27 F England Wife
Boarder Actress Comedienne
Christina Sandford 4 F England Boarder (Daur)

I got this information from :
Travellers in the 1881 British Census Page 5
( Entertainment)
Would like to view ? Scotland`s Census
I am searching for James Sandford born approx 1844 married in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne 1869.
Occupation Comedian. His father was James McClay Sandford Occupation Solicitor.
There is a possibility he may have been related to Thomas Sandford ( both had same occupations)
Any help appreciated.

I have relatives who lived at 117 stockwell street in Glasgow, in 1868. John Miller and mary Cooke. Mary's father, James was musician and I had hoped to find them in the 1871 census but no joy. Any ideas? They were married on 6 Oct 1868 at 38 Carnavron Street, Glasgow

It looks as though these addresses were frequented by professional people e.g. actors, comedians, musicians, etc. You may be wise to post a lookup request for your people in relevant census dates , giving information of names , ages, profession, also where they were born, where you think they were living. This is all I can think of.

Good Luck.

Just in case you happen to see this - some years on! 1881 Census: 105 Stockwell Street, Glasgow. My ancestors Mr and Mrs Cooper (violinist/singer) seem to have been staying there at the time of Mr Cooper's death in January 1881 (though he actually died at 220 Hope Street which I think is the Theatre Royal. This seems to bear out comments that this address/area was lived in by musicians and entertainers.

The website and contact details for the Britannia is at https://www.britanniapanopticon.org/   the charitable trust who now run the place do have some information on its history but it may not be applicable to your relatives

Another interesting site linked from that page is https://pickardspapers.gla.ac.uk/   the papers of one of the early managers of the Panopticon.
