There was an Acre Street close to Halpin Place

Scroll to the north for Townsend Street, where the Drews were living in 1881
Halpin Place may have been called Little Park Place in 1881? See the archived Historical Streets Project, 1891 census

Ian seems to have sorted the rest, all within a few streets of each other! Halpin place, Hollington street and Sultan streets are all too small to be named on my 1888 map, and what I took to read as Farlow Street, can clearly seen in Ian's map as Barlow Street.

All we need now is Hard Street and job done :)

Well, looking at the Historical Streets Project, 1871, St Saviour Southwark Registration District
Hard Street
nearby street - Camden Street
remarks - formerly New Street
Reference - RG 10/620
Folios 49-54, 60

1871 census, in the sub-disrict of St Peter Walworth, in enumeration district 32. Which has a description available on ancestry. Says "New Street" is now called "Hard Street"

Thank you very much for all this info, I will sit and digest later. This family was one of the many that had a tough life in Victorian London.

Thanks again everyone and to Mick and Ian for the time spent on finding the other streets for me. I've been having a look at the maps and been doing some googling. Seems from Charles Booth Poverty Maps of London that Sultan St and Hollington St were not nice places to live -no wonder most of them died young. I know a lot more from the pdf certificates including the fact that they said they were married long before they were so have plenty to work on. Pauline
