I have come across an 1871 census record but cannot make out the street name... can anyone make it out? It's a Birkenhead (St Anne District) street:

Possibly Harcourt St ???

On a quick search I can't find any other likely candidate.

I normally click along a page or two on the census forms to see if i can make out the next Road. Might give the necessary clue.

Could almost be Hamond (or Hammond, spellings are not always correct)- but there's a suggestion of a capital R just before St. All part of the fun of deciphering census records! Good luck.

Is it Flamank Street? There was a street of that name in the area.

This is from the Birkenhead 1909 map. Flamank Street (near the junction of Arthur Street and Price Street) is certainly in St Anne's district.

I think yoller and bert1 are right. Fairly sure that the style of writing and census transcriptions have caused problems before and been discussed in a previous post

It's is Flamank Street. RG10/3748.

Hammond & Harcourt streets don't exist in 1871.

If you get stuck with a street name , the best thing to post is the RG/Piece/folio number on the page, so much quicker to check the street then.

Sorry with the late post, only just noticed it.

Thanks OxtonHill - you're spot on. I've just checked the record again and it is indeed RG10/3748. How do you go about checking the street via the RG/Piece/Folio number?

Thanks again.

If you don't mind me asking, where/how are you accessing the old street maps?

I have a street index for 1871 & 1891 for Birkenhead showing all the streets with their correct RG/Piece/Folio number.

You can buy the Birkenhead 1909 Ordnance Survey map and other old Wirral maps from The Godfrey Edition -

... they're not dear.

yoller, is the snapshot you posted above a scan from a paper map you have? It's good quality if it is - or is there a way of obtaining digital versions of the maps too? I have had a look at the website you mentioned but all seem to be paper maps. Many thanks.
