Hi, this has been helpful for me as I am also looking at St George area.

Does anyone know if 1891 census pages are missing for this area? I'm looking for 40 Percival Street which is in District 1 on the census returns but there are no pages with that street on.

Hi,

40 Percival St is marked 'empty'  RG12/3245/29 page 51.
There is a Horsfall Bowker age 47 at 38 Percival St, if that makes it easier to find.

It is in sub-registration district St George, district no 15a. Maybe it was a street that crossed district boundaries.

On the old map (dated 1891) it is the only Percival St that I can see in the area. There is another one in Miles Platting.

Hope that helps
 :) Barbara

Many thanks Barbara, I have been looking at the same maps!

I had my gt grandfather's death cert so knew it was St George. After I'd posted another friend sent me all the RG numbers for Manchester St George and I went through all the descriptions until I found it in District 15a as you say. Was disappointed to see it was empty because my family were living there in 1888 my gt grandfather  died there in 1897 Nine years seems like a long time in one property in those times. I suppose they could have come back to it.

Thanks again for a quick response.

St. George; Manchester was in the area now known as the "Northern Quarter" of central Manchester and can be found by maps from 1850 to 1890. The St Georges road ran from Shudehill (by Smithfield market) parallel to Great Ancoats Street roughly to the area which is now Stephenson square.

There were two St.George`s Churches.
The first was on a side street running off the old Rochdale Road,which at that time was called St.George`s   Road.                                                                                                             That was demolished possibly something to do with developing the area.
The new one was on Oldham Road and my father was baptised there.1897.
St George`s was a registration district and appears on census returns.
.Although the second church was on busy Oldham Rd it was still called St.George`s in the Fields.
My father also attended the day school, living in Reather St and Apollo st.

The first post in this topic mentions Osborne St.
There was one of that name near the St.Grorge`s I mentioned.
On that street there were swimming baths and Osborne St.School was famous for the prowess of of
its medal winning swimmers.
You are correct in saying there was a St George`s church in Hulme but given the surrounding street names I am sure it is the Oldham Rd. one which formerly had been on another close by street.
Go to Manchester Photographic Archives and there is a photograph of the  church on Oldham Rd.
Also the inside.Viktoria.

Hi - I have ancestors listed in 1851 census living in Primrose St, Ancoats - "ecclesiastical district of St George"

It is spitting distance from Oldham Road where there was a St George's Church. Found this page on it:
https://manchestervictorianarchitects.org.uk/buildings/church-of-st-george-oldham-road-ancoats-manchester

In 1851 the predecessor to this church built 1874-77 would have been my ancestors' place of worship.
