    Default Dr. Livingstone,I presume.....

    Wondered if anyone on Yo, could confirm,or not, if it's true that Dr.Henry Stanley, of "Dr.Livingstone,I presume" fame, lived in Portland place,which is near Great Homer st. I'm sure I read this somewhere,and that, at one time,there was a memorial plaque on one of the houses,to commemorate the fact! There are only 4 houses of the terrace left,and these have been converted into flats,or some sort of hostel,but they now appear vacant? I spoke with an agent, of the nearby housing development,who was under the impression that these houses would soon be demolished,even though they are probably the oldest houses left,in the area,all else having been demolished,sometimes more than once!

    Thats funny he was in a workhouse in St Asaph around that time and when turned 18 went to the states.

    He was born 1841 and was in the workhouse till 18 so work it out?

    Ok might have to eat my hat here? although some sites say he was at the workhouse till 15 and some say 18? it would seem he stayed with his grandparents (Address unknown) it would seem he embarked on his journey to the states from Liverpool so he either stayed at that address for 2 years or he found that Liverpool was the nearest seaport to stowaway on a ship vound for the states?

    I didn't know vut his last name was barsteward,take the r,e and w away
