Deciphering of Street Name in Stanley, Yorks please
« on: Tuesday 02 July 19 20:15 BST (UK) »
Hello Everyone,

I am trying to decipher a street name in Stanley, Yorkshire on the 1861 census. The family I am researching are not in Stanley in 1851 or 1871.

This 'street' runs over several pages and variously looks like;
Bottom Boat
Bolton Road
Bilton Road
Bottom Road etc etc

If anyone with better eyesight than I have can make it out, I would really appreciate it. To be honest I'd never even heard of Stanley, Yorks before.

Many, many thanks for looking.

You absolute stars! Thank you SO much for your speedy replies.

The website links are really useful also -- mention miners and the person I am researching was a Miner.

The websites add great background information -- I hadn't thought anything could be called Bottom Boat, even though it looked a possibility.

Many thanks again.

Old map of the area 1840's  might be of interest https://maps.nls.uk/view/102345004#zoom=5&lat=4184&lon=13041&layers=BT
