Hi

So where have you got the name from and in what context?

... and you do mean Elstree and not Watford?

 Thank you Ray,
So that proves it was there, I have looked for a Directory for 1859-1862 on line but didnít find one
I donít know if the local Library would have one for that time? I looked for an E mail address but didnít find one.

Thanks
