    Smile NEWPORT'S GARDEN- POPLAR, MDX

    JOHN BAKER. Painter, died on 26th Aug,1841 at NEWPORT'S GARDEN, North Street, Poplar. ANN BAKER, also of this address was in attendance.

    Anyone heard of this place? I guess it was residential and like a block of flats.

    I note an Upper North Street, Poplar is on the current map. I have done an address search on the 1841 Census, but no Newports Garden appears.

    Many thanks,
    Prue

    As with your other query on Featherstone's Buildings, it's wise to search without the possessive 's.
    In this case Newport Garden in 1841 is HO107/702 book 5 folio 18 page 29, and a BAKER family appears to be in residence.

    If street indexing on FMP or another commercial site doesn't throw up what you need, look at the National Archives' official street index to 1841 and 1851.

    Thankyou... you kind people are so obliging & helpful. This has opened up another possible (& headache!) branch of the BAKER family. I thought all JOHN BAKER'S (my g-g-g-grandfather) children had come to Australia in 1840, but this family at Newport Garden, Poplar in 1841 could be that of another child, or his brother's children. Then, we should never presume, should we.

    May I ask what does FMP stand for?

    Sorry, it's Find My Past, a paysite which allows census searches by address as well as name.

    Yes, I should have thought a bit harder! I have a subscription to FMP and Ancestry-UK

    "Cross's New Plan of London 1850" on MAPCO shows North Street to extent slightly further south than the current street to include what is now Saltwell Street. Looking at the 1850 map there doesn't appear to be that many buildings. According to Ancestory (East India Road - North side - Newport Gardens - HO 107/1556) it appears to be on the north side of East India (Dock) Road, so perhaps it's the building showing on the junction.

    This is a terrific map showing streets & buildings and so yes, Newport Gardens must have been near the junction. Not a lot of buiding activity had taken place between 1841 & 1850. If only Google maps had been around then!
    Thanks...Prue
