Help with an address please
« on: Sunday 24 May 20 21:00 BST (UK) »
I am having trouble finding this person and the address in the 1901 census so wonder if I am misreading the information?

This snippet is from Dec 1901, so of course the person may not have lived at this address at the time of the census but I would have expected the address to exist.

I think is says Mr Maunder, Hallsop, Belsize Park, SE

I have searched FindMyPast 1901 census using the address and found Belsize Park, Gardens and Mews but all of them have numbered houses, with no names, other than one that is The Parsonage.  Perhaps I am misreading Hallsop?  I think Maunder is correct.

I can't find a likely Maunder either in the 1901 census, or electoral rolls.  I thought he would have a vote since he owned property.

Any ideas please?

Thanks.

It wouldn't be Belsize Park if it was SE.
I once lived in Belsize Park and that was NW3

I agree with Hilltop. I'll enlarge to see it more clearly.

There is a house called Hilltop in Muswell Hill, and another in Hendon.
 Neither of those are S.E. Either

There is a Mr Maunder 83 boundary Road who is an agent for the Hampstead & Highgate Express in 1903

And he is there in 1901, Marylebone.  Still not S.E. 
However just in case his name is Owen Maunder, 34, Stationer, b Farleigh, Somerset.

Thanks for all your suggestions.  I hadn't read it as two words, but it certainly does look like Hill Top.

Perhaps it isn't SE at all.  Did people in 1901 refer to London areas in this way in any case?  I'll have to look at the rest of the document to see what those letters might resemble elsewhere.

Just checked one at random. London 1901. Some codes, some not.

Larger Towns and cities in UK had area codes before the introduction of post codes.
