    As you've found out, they were also given numbers.
    thanks do you know of any way i can get the info without going to the records office, as i live in the Netherlands now, so its difficult for me to just pop in there,

    Alison,

    Census records: why don't you do it online? Go back to the original sheet that you pulled up on Genes Reunited. Often, the census page number is at the top of the screen [it is on Ancestry.co.uk] on Ancestry you can advance to the next one, or the preceding one, just by entering the page number?

    Hi Alison.
    I've found it!
    It says Goughs Court on that Census entry, and it's shown as Goff's Court on the 1848 map.
    (Thanks to Dazza for his help with all those 1848 maps.)
    Same pronunciation - different spelling.
    The smaller scale 1890 map shows the site had been cleared, and there was a cooperage there by the time of the 1906 map.

    Hi Alison,

    Just to complete the picture. I did a quick search on the 1871 Census.

    Here are Census Sheets 14, 15, '16' & 17. These are the census sheets either side of 'Sheet 16' [which you originally posted] for Gough's [Goff's] Court. Sheet 14 shows the end of "Printers Court" and the beginning of "Gough's Court". They are neighbouring courts on the same block, as shown on Quentin's 1848 OS map posted earlier.

    Regards,

    Daz

    A couple of SHEPHERD burials are listed on Toxteth Park Cemetery website. 1869 and 1873 at 4 Court, Parliament Street.
    http://www.toxtethparkcemetery.co.uk/

    Gough Court is listed under Parliament Street on the 1851 Census.
