Morris Lyons, 1811, was living there in 1841.

It appears to be between Carol (?) Gate and Wharf.

Added:  Could be Canal Gate, and near New Street.

I found Apsley Place, East Retford on the 1871 census, only four households, enumerated between Dominie Cross Road which exists today and South Road, (there's a South Street nearby so maybe that's had a slight name change).

P.s. Dominie Cross Road is near Carolgate and Wharf too

Following on from the earlier finds, it should be somewhere around here:

http://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/sidebyside.cfm#zoom=17&lat=53.3182&lon=-0.9389&layers=171&right=BingHyb

That map is not very detailed but you may be able to find another. I did have a look but my ipad is not co-operating at the moment. Old-maps.co.uk appear to have a couple which look fairly detailed, but they are not loading for me. :-\

If there were only a few households living there it may be so small as to not be marked on any map.
