    And guess what...there's a Byron Terrace where those five houses are...I have to say they've matched the surrounding architecture very well

    They've done an excellent job of blending them in.
    The door on St Patrick's Rd was lost with the demolition on #35 obviously. The next house up after Byron terrace has a door onto St Patrick's Rd numbered 29, so 35 Montgomery probably did have a postal address of 31 St Patrick's Rd too.

      • Is this Albert Crossingham the 'Bertie' who, along with Margaret Sullivan, was attacked at 20 Dorset Street in 1897? The attackers knocked at the door of the lodging house and asked for Albert, so presumably he was the intended target.

        Interestingly Margaret Sullivan's daughter, Matilda, was born in Holloway.

        I should have her birth certificate in the next day or so.

          Hi Gary,
          'Bertie' involved with Margaret Sullivan was the youngest brother of William Crossingham (he had a strange name that I can't recall just now), not Albert. It's on the thread we discussed the incident on I think.

                Infirmary of the parish of Paddington
                John Pizer, age 36, admission- 18th May 1888,
                by whom admitted-transfer
                From whence admitted-workhouse 18 May 88
                Cause of chargeability- carbuncular boil ruptured
                occupation -shoemaker
                name and address of nearest known relative-none
                discharged 4th June 1888

                Interesting that Pizer gives no next of kin name or address.

                I also found 4 City of London Union workhouse (Homerton) entries for Pizer covering the Autumn of 1874 and one for 1882. While being listed as able bodied in 1874, in the 1882 entry in answer to the question 'able bodied?' the answer is no.
                On a couple of occassions Pizer is listed as having 'no home'

                City of London Union Workhouse
                John Pizer, Age 24, No home, single, Bootmaker
                able bodied-yes
                admitted by Bosher
                admitted 30th July 1874, discharged 27th Aug 74 at own request

                John Pizer, 24, 27 Castle St, single, Bootmaker
                able bodied-yes
                admitted by S Alloway
                admitted 29th Aug 74, discharged 1st Sept 74 on own request

                John Pizer, 24, no home, single, shoe finisher,
                able bodied-yes,
                admitted by S Alloway
                admitted 5th Sept 74, discharged 11 Sept 74 on own request

                City of London Union Workhouse (Homerton)
                John Pizer, 32, 7 Cock Hill, single, shoemaker
                able bodied-no
                admitted by W Bosher
                admitted 13th Nov 82, discharged 27 Nov 82 at own request
                Just to update this ; I have also found that Pizer was resident in both Holborn and Southwark (Mint St) workhouses in the 70s and was sent on to Poplar on one occassion.
                His address in 1875 was listed as 'Gagers' Mint St (St George Southwark). I guessed that 'Gager' was perhaps the name of a lodging house keeper and luckily enough found a Robert Gager listed as the Lodging House Keeper at 40 and 42 Mint St St George in 1861.
