    Default Liverpool Street in 1847

    Hello
    On the Liverpool Catholic Burials on Ancestry there is a Mary Davison aged 31 years buried at St Anthony's on 13 June 1847. Can anyone decipher the name of the street where she lived for me? The first letter looks like an "S" going by the writing elsewhere on the page but could it be Gay or Joy?
    Thanks
    Pat

    There was a Gay St at the start of Scotland Road but no residents are shown on my Kelly's edition other than the coal merchants Duffys.
    Edit: I should have added that the reason no other residents are shown is because Kellys, sadly, did not list residents of 'Courts' which I would have thought was the majority in Liverpool upto the late 1950's
    Hope this is a little help

    If a man speaks in the forest and no woman hears him, is he still wrong ?

    Hello Pat

    Yes it could be "Gay Street" though if I could compare that street name another name that began with a capital "G" I could be more certain. Isn't working with period documents both fascinating and frustrating in equal measure?

    All the best
