Cambridge Place

History of Cambridge Place

General Notes

The 1851 census lists around 50 occupying families in Cambridge Place without any indication of the house number.  In contrast, the 1841 census does describe each household by house number. However, it does seem possible to place the 1851 households in relation to the 1841 and 1861 addresses.

‘A Disorderly House’ (Barraclough 2018) notes that in the 1840s many women arrested for prostitution gave it as their address.
