  1. My Great grandfather William Parkinson lodged at “House under Offices” at 2 Lower Gosford Street in 1880, I believe this would be with the caretaker and his family the Wyldbores. He married the daughter Mary and my grandfather Peter Parkinson was born there along other siblings.Mary died possibly in childbirth.
    William married within 6 onths with his deceased wife’s Aunt Marie. I believe by 1901 Marie was the caretaker, William had died, and she brought up seven children some orphan’s of the Wyldbores. The address in 1901 was given as Cleveland Buildings House under Offices Wouls appreciate reply if of any interest.
