1861 Census, look up by Address please.
« on: Monday 03 May 10 21:04 BST (UK) »
Does anyone out there have a subscription to Find my Past or one of the other sites that allows a lookup by street address?

I have one John George Holmes that married a Matilda Berry in January of 1861. They list their address on the marriage certificate as East Street Bethnal Green (no house number given). I have been trying to find a way to search by street name but can only seem to do it on Find My Past on the census that is free to view and not the earlier ones. If anyone can help me have a look for them on the 1861 census I'd be eternally grateful.

If there's anyone that is bored and just fancies trying to find them, their details are:

John Holmes b. 1823 Newington Surrey
Matilda Berry b. 1831 Newington Surrey.

John had two kids by a previous wife that may be on the census with them also.

John Holmes b. 1849 and Henry M Holmes b. 1851

His first wife was named Eliza and b. 1831 in poddington middlesex.... I'm fairly sure she's out of the picture by 1861 though.

I am having a hard time finding these folks in both the 1861 and 1871 census so any help is welcomed.

The marriage cert shows Matilda as 24 so b 1835/36 and John G was 39 occ sweep

Was the address East St or Earl St - could be either but on balance - probably East

Thanks Isobel.
I don't think that's him as he's shown as 39 on the marriage cert I have and a sweep but it's worth looking at. Could you give me the ref numbers so I can take a look... I think I can do that on ancestry can't I?

Aha! I got smart and ran a search, now I can at least run through East Street in it's entirety and see who else is around. Thanks!
