My husband's great great grandparents Adam & Ann Campbell lived at number 5, they are there on the 1871 & 1881 census. Strangely enough his other great great grandparents on his mother's side Edmond & Elizabeth Wilkins lived at number 6, they were there in 1853 when their daughter was born and also are there on the 1861 census.

At the time my great great grandparents Henry Guilford & Eliza Simmons married in 1842 at St Nicholas Church they were living in Wood Street. Henry at no 16 & Eliza at no 35. Henry was described as a Railway Policeman (Guard). So the houses must have been built around or before this time.

My Grandparents lived at 9, Wood Street in the 50's. Grandma's sister, husband and 3 sons lived across the road and my Aunt and her husband lived at no.3. We lived with my Grandparents until I was 6.

Hello Josie Campbell; Adam Campbell is my 5x Great Uncle - I just found his address on the 1871 Census. If your husband - presumably a cousin of some permutation - would care to share family info my name can be searched on ancestry.com. :)
