Street Name in Stafford
« on: Friday 18 January 19 23:24 GMT (UK) »
Hello

I have a Hollin(g)shead family connection to Stafford and I have a copy of a birth certificate for Ada Hollingshead who was born in 1883. I am having some trouble deciphering the street name. I know the family lived in Mill Bank in the 1881 census and back in Mill Bank in 1885 (from another BC)
but this certificate doesn't read like it is Mill Bank, but it is definitely something Bank.   

I have attached a snippet of the BC. Was there a Fenter Bank maybe?

Any help would be appreciated.

Best regards

Yes, definitely Tenterbank.  As Kay said, Tenterbanks is in Stafford, where Stafford College is, and a continuation of Mill Street
