Re: Hebburn street names
Most people living there were Irish.I was trying to find when my 1872 born great granda John Cadyer was 'adopted' by the McNeill family. The McNeill's lived in Colling St (some records say Colling not Collin). I checked the 1881 Census to see if he was with them with his under his new name John McNeill. sadly the 1881 Enumerator missed a lot of properties. Years later I told Hebburn Historian Ron French the story.He said if the Enumerator was going around the street/lane in the dark nights that place was like a rabbit warren. Whole families living in single rooms.
