Interestingly, Charles Boothís maps donít show the area as being too bad at all:

There is the odd dark or black street but generally mixed, even with variations within the same streets. Dock areas not good but thatís to be expected.

I have had a brief look for any information about the area 150 years earlier when Greggles family lived there but apart from a bit about the church and the parish, I couldnít easily find much.

Thanks Ruskie,  There is so much fascinating information about the East End and the various maps have helped me find the streets where later family members resided too.

One of my distant ancestors Frederick Triggs was born 25 April 1853, at 2 Cannon Street Road. I have always wondered how we got a name  Street Road, Normally we have Street or a Road but not both.

Because it is the Road to Cannon Street.
