Needham St 1907/09

We do not usually respond to requests seeking help in Family History searches. We cannot -for if we did, we could do nothing else.    For example, it took your editor five years of constant (part-time) work to complete his own! 

West End Bar here is on Needham Street (left turn)

However if we can respond to a simple request, we will. Here is printed the lists of householders in
Needham Street
(now
Patrick Street
) in two separate years about a century ago.

This is in response to the query below, from Declan Carville ……….


My great grandfather was a driver on the railways at the turn of the century and according to his marriage certificate he lived at

16 Needham Street
. His son, my grandfather, also lived in
Needham Street
before moving to Glasgow. He was born in 1904.


I can’t seem to find him in the 1901 census. His name was Willy John McCann. His father George McCann. Is

Needham Street
now
Patrick Street
? Any help would be appreciated.

 

Declan: do not be surprised by the alteration in address: either might be accurate or not!   From the same period, I found my grandmother’s address – just 500m away – altered between two similar periods, although she never moved house in her adult life!


Try the 1901 Census again but this time check all addresses in

Needham Street
 … indeed, in other Streets too!


If the above is accurate, it seems probable that the move to Glasgow occurred about 1908.


Personally I find the number of different residents above – and indeed, the alteration in house numbers – to be quite remarkable.


These studies are really quite intriguing.  We will continue to supply list of residents from the past.
