  • My husband’s great great grandparents Adam & Ann Campbell lived at number 5, they are there on the 1871 & 1881 census. Strangely enough his other great great grandparents on his mother’s side Edmond & Elizabeth Wilkins lived at number 6, they were there in 1853 when their daughter was born and also are there on the 1861 census.

  • At the time my great great grandparents Henry Guilford & Eliza Simmons married in 1842 at St Nicholas Church they were living in Wood Street. Henry at no 16 & Eliza at no 35. Henry was described as a Railway Policeman (Guard). So the houses must have been built around or before this time.

  • Hello Josie Campbell; Adam Campbell is my 5x Great Uncle – I just found his address on the 1871 Census. If your husband – presumably a cousin of some permutation – would care to share family info my name can be searched on ancestry.com. 🙂
