    And here’s a nice photo of some of the houses in Beulah Crescent.

      In this (ca) 1870 map Frederick Terrace is the small block of housing just below the Fountain Head pub. Beulah Road can be seen below that leading in one direction to the Beulah Brickfield and in the other to Beulah Crescent where suburban villas were being built.
      You’ll notice the long, narrow building just above the word ‘Head’. I think that may have been a row of cottages in Fountains Head Yard.

      An 1869 directory shows some interesting names among the residents of the Yard: Sullivan, Collins, Bryant - McCarthy!

      Food for thought.

      Note: Bryant was probably Robert Bryant, a Suffolk-born master blacksmith who was recorded in the Yard on the 1871 census.

        In 1871 there were several bricklayer’s labourers living in Fountain Head Yard:

        John Power (born in Norwood, mother born in Ireland)

        Andrew Collins (born in Cork)
        John Collins (born in Norwood)

        Charles Balls (born in Suffolk)

        William Haires (born in Marylebone)
