My great grandfather was WILLIAM EDMUND PERKS born abt. 1851 in Stourbridge. Christened at OLDSWINFORD. In 1851 they lived at HIGH ST Oldswinford and in 1861 in DUDLEY STREET West Bromwich. William then disappears until 1881 when he is in Widnes.

His father WILLIAM PERKS, having been widowed, remarries in West Brom. His children are HENRIETTA, born in West Brom 1859,
FRANK and ALICE born West Brom 1863
WALTER born Tipton 1852
CAROLINE born Smethwick 1867
ANNIE born Smwthwick 1869They lived in Victoria Cottages Harborne in 1871 and 24 Jesson Street West Brom in 1881.

William Perks was "in" wines beers and spirits.

Are all these places near each other? Can anyone tell me if any of these addresses still exist?

Thank you

Don't know if the houses still exist but you could try this link for the streets which will also allow you to see if they are within the same area
