Wood Street 1851

by Marilyn Palfreman 7 March

My great grandmother Louisa Mary Goodwin was living in Wood Street in 1851 aged 3 along with her parents James William Goodwin , Louisa Goodwin and a baby brother William Thomas Goodwin.

They are on the 1851 census as living at 9 Wood Street Brighton but their name has wrongly been transcribed as Goodman. I am therefore having trouble locating her birth certificate.

Any help much appreciated.
