    I have used newspapers to research London properties and workhouses my ancestors live or spent time in (workhouses).

    Have you tried 'googling' their name? You never know what may turn up and I have had some success...

    Military records are another good source.

    Good Luck.

    Lots of useful information above to add to that I found investigating relatives quite useful, I recently found out that my GGG Grandfather who was made chief warder of a gaol in 1875 had a cousin of the same name who was executed for murder in his gaol in that year. At first I thought that the name must have been just a curious coincidence but investigation has revealed a family connection. How must it feel to preside over the execution of a family member? And how would the rest of the family feel? Cousins, Aunts, uncles etc can help to give a broader picture to the lives of ancestors.
