Bermondsey
« on: Monday 14 January 19 13:25 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I Wonder if anyone can help?
I had an ancestor James Wade a shipwright working at Fountain Stairs in late 1700s early 1800s.
I have records of him living in Charlotte Row but on old maps I canít find the area it could be today .
I would imagine it could have been near to where he had his office.
  Any help would be appreciated thank you .

According to the 1851 census Charlotte Row was between Richardson Steet and Nelson Street

Do you have him with an office on a street directory? Not sure a shipwright would have had an office unless he owned a business - probably would have worked for an employer or been aboard ship other times.
