So is there a mistake somewhere, there can't be two no 5s on the same street  ???

5 high Street is at RG9 Piece 2563 Folio 84 Page 23, and also at RG9 Piece 2563 Folio 89 Page 2.

Perhaps the Enumerator had visited Mr Robinson's Brewery too frequently  :o :o :o

Very Strong possibility of that or perhaps The Royal Oak, also on High St. ;D ;D ;D

Shows that in 1861, High Street, Stockport appears in folios 60-64, 69, 78-85 and 89-92.

A bit laborious, but you can search through the folios one by one using the census reference.

St Petersgate Bridge which is at the top of High St and leading from St Petersgate into the market place wasn't built until 1868.
Before that High St wasn't clearly defined and ran into High Bank Side.
maybe that caused confusion with the numbering.
The address for the Edgerton Arms is given these days as St Petersgate but it was originally High Street and one of the few still open today.

Wow! Thanks to you all for the replies! What I have is a death certificate for a Fenton Moore. Per the certificate his home address and place of death was 4 High Street Stockport in 1865. Perhaps they made a mistake on the certificate. Very frustrating. On the certificate, they also list the county as Chester instead of Cheshire but district as Stockport (first) so maybe a mistake on the street address isn't too hard to imagine.

The other family members I'm searching are listed at Benison's court on the census which apparently close to High St. as it is also listed on their census records on the same page. Trying to find the relationship between the parties. Can't locate Benison's Court anywhere either so that makes two mystery locations for me now! Is there an online map you all are seeing that I could reference?

Again thanks so much for all the replies!
