Can anyone please help in locating 50 Henderson Street Westoe USD. I have a birth certificate for 1881 with an address there.

Thanks

Just checked with reg office this morning. They had mistranscribed the address- should have been Stevenson Street

Stevenson Street ran from Westoe Road to Chichester Road, part of it is still there; from numbers 160 upwards. Highest number is at
Westoe Road end.

Thanks once again Mr Smith. I did find Stevenson Street this morning on my Godfrey 1/2500 map but even in1896 it looked incomplete.
