Can any one help me find the names of residents of 25 Cross Street, St Philip's Birmingam, for 1841 and 1851? I have the birth certificate for a distant relative born there on 25 June 1846. Her mother and father lived in London and were at home for both censuses so my working assumption was that the mother went home to her family to give birth. The mother signed with an "X" and the clerk recorded her name as "Jane Phillips formerly Danvel" (could be Damel) but in any case we don't know if the mother was able to give the correct spelling of her maiden name to the clerk. Jane was born prior to 1837 and married pre-1841 so my only hope of tracking her down is to find her parents' family name. Thanks, Roger.
