Hi Mrst,

Dinsdale Road still exists in Newcastle, if you Google the name you should find some photographs of various properties as they stand now.

I'm afraid I couldn't find anything with reference to the others .. ..

Kind regards,

Pels

C1891 4208-72-2

Moore family were "in" Stowell Street. One of my fav streets of Newcastle... it is Chinatown.

Stowell St today runns from St Andrew's St ( adjacent to St Andrew's Church.. " The Oldest Church in this town" states it's notice board.) to Bath Lane.

In those days Stowell Street had, typical of many Newcastle streets, several back alleys/entries/courts or whatever, running off it.

The Moore's were down a court at number 7, which was off where number one Stowell Street.

I think enumerator after starting off on page one with Stowell Street, wrote ...

" 7 No 1 Court"

All these back alleys now demolished.

C1901 4779-133-11

Moore's at  8 Pacey's Buildings, in Back Lane.

This was fairly close to where they were on C1891.

I am not familiar with this particular " Back Lane" but from the enumerator's description of the census district, the addresses before and after the Moores, and a map, the Moores were in an triangular area enclosed by the back of the southern side of Gallowgate and the northern side of Bath Lane ( close to Newcastle Brewery and where the National Express Coach Station was)

Thank you very much Michael. :)

I have been researching the family for a while and have just been jotting down addresses ect without much thought.

After being glued to "who do you think you are" I think it is nice to get a feel of how and where people lived. And if possible see pictures.

I have been at my local library gathering pictures of where my ancestors lived and it really brings it all to life.

Maybe one of these days I will get to Newcastle to do the same.

Thanks again for your time
Mrst
