    Hello
    I am trying to find the first recorded year in the 1930s when my grandmother Annie or Ann Hutton moved from Peabody Buildings, Wild Street Estate in central London to live at No. 24 Packington Street, Islington. I know she was living there in 1935 as my mother was married from that address. From Islington she moved to Muswell Hill again would love to know when. Would be grateful to receive any information.

    Ann Hutton is listed in the the electoral register at 24 Packham Street in 1936 but not in 1935. The 1935 register was in force until October 1936. Somewhere I've got a note of the qualification date

    You can search these online for yourself at Ancestry (free at your local library).

    The qualification date was 1 June. So this suggests that she wasn't at Packham Street on 1 June 1935 but was by June 1936.

    I'll leave the rest for you to look at!

    Making allowances for my mental block about the name of the street (I don't know why I kept typing Packham instead of Packington) that's not inconsistent with what I said - not there on 1 Jun 1935, was there on 1 Jun 1936. Then as now, the electoral registers are snapshots. They don't tell us what happened in between the magic dates.
