And another can you read
« on: Tuesday 15 February 05 18:41 GMT (UK) »
Anyone know what this address could be in 1842.

Subdistrict is Sandport and Southsea although I always thought it was Landport

I think The date is twenty-ninth of August 1842 2.30 A M but what is the address?


I know you all like a puzzle

It is Landport, I've seen the curly L before.

The other line definitely reads "back of the" and the next letter is a "W" - again I have seen this form before. It looks like "Wiltshire Saint" to me and makes me wonder if it was a boat?

Hi all,

It's definitely Landport and it was a pub called the Wiltshire Lamb.

Thanks to all.

Little Nell that is exactly right.  I had another look at the 1841 census.  The person who typed the registration district at the top of the certificate typed Sandport and Southsea.  Just shows you can't trust anyone these days.
