Looking for old adress in winshill==complete
« on: Monday 19 March 12 16:31 GMT (UK) »
My great grandparents were living at 20 Eldon building in winshill according to 1881census and later in Hadley end in 1891. Is it possible to find out where there residence was in 1881 compared to today and a more exact location in 1892? First time looking at this information not sure what to do next to find the locations for future travel.

Thanks

Hi,

Re Hadley End, Yoxall, Staffordshire.

It is always a good idea to "walk the Census", go to other pages within the district you are in and look for say
a Church, Public House or Large House.

In the case of District 27, Yoxall Staffordshire, there does not appear to be such a building, however the
enumerator walked from Morrey, Olive Green, Green Lane and then Hadley End.

By looking on line at Maps you should discover Hadley End, by entering Yoxall.  This will only give you a rough
idea of the area covered as Hadley End but there is a Morrey Lane, Yoxall.
