Hi 

Can anyone point me in the right direction to obtain a map of Sylvester Lane in 1880s? Ideally with the court/house numbers. 

Thanks in advance

Thanks! Where did you find this?? I'm looking for 8 Castle Yard, Sylvester Gardens. I know there's the Arundel Castle pub so wondered if it was next to that?

Thanks again

The yard behind the Arundel Castle Inn had several dwellings in it (see SteveHB's map).  The newspapers reported the address of people living in these dwellings as being "Arundel Castle Yard". However in the 1861 census, the addresses were just described as "Yard", although they followed the entry for the Arundel Castle pub.  However they were not close to Sylvester Gardens - and not really close to Sylvester Lane which was nearer. 

There were no house numbers quoted in 1861, but heads of households were: Mary Scott, Charles Blackburn, Jesse Johnson, John Lindley, George Dewsnap, Thomas Bowling, John Heatlie, Joseph Smith.

In 1871 the address was given as Arundel Street Court 5.
