Harman Bridges St Pancras 1891

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Clive Report 15 Feb 2013 15:41

Has anyone got access to the 1891 census and can locate my relative Harman Bridges. I know he was living in Kentish Town in 1891 but can't read the name of the street. I took it as Rikers Street but this does not seem to be on any maps of that time.
Harman was born in 1861 in Norwich and was married to Georgina Matilda Bridges who was born in Winchcombe Gloucester. He was in the leather trade.

many thanks

Many thanks for the info. I thought it strange that 2 children in the family were named emma that is why I wondered if the other child who is Caroline Elizabeth was my relation. It was difficult for me to work out which was which as I only have baisic assess to records.
