  1. I am researching my family history and in 1881 my Great-Great grandmother, Georgina Adams, lived at 76 Brunswick Street, Stockton with her seven children. Her husband, Charles John Adams, died in 1879 of Diabetes Mellitus. Georgina’s Father, John Settle, lived at 73 Brunswick Street.

  6. Hi Tony, thanks for your reply, it has helped me. I”m fairly sure my ancestor wouldn”t have lived in a grand house so I was interested to hear that there were different types of house on the street. As to the Gibson connection, well, that”s my husband”s surname. I will have to ask my father-in-law about Jimmy Gibson to see if he was any relation! Thanks again. Janice

  7. In reply to Janice Gibson,I lived in 52 Brunswick Street, back in 1952. I was only five and our house was a terraced house with no steps at all, my best friend at that time was Jimmy Gibson,we had many a happy time as children, he lived in a house I am sure which had steps leading up to the front door. He later went on to have his own business in plumbing. But there were many terraced houses on our side which was near the Brunswick pub, hope this helps you Janice.

  8. I believe my 4 x great grandmother lived in Brunswick Street in 1851, a discovery I”ve only just made. These houses seem a bit grand, with a floor below ground and steps up to the front door. Was the whole street like this or were there other, more modest, types of houses there?
