The Leicester Journal dated 31 October 1851 carried details of a number of property sales including:

Freehold property to be sold at auction at the house of Mrs Priestley, the Fox Inn, Barrow-upon-Soar on Monday 10 November at 4 o'clock. Freehold property heretofore the estate of Mr Francis Brotherton, deceased.

Lot 1 - All those 8 cottages or tenements, with the gardens adjoining, situated in the village of Barrow-upon-Soar and in the respective occupation of Elizabeth Burton, Thomas Harriman, George Burton, John Heward, HARRIETT LOCKWOOD, William Hall, John Woodford and John Thornton.

Looking at the 1851 census several of those named are Harriett's neighbours so it must relate to where she lived.
