53 Perrott St. Birmingham


Cradley Heathen
I have found my Great Great grandfather living at 53 Perrott in Birmingham. As there were 8 people all of the same family living at this address, could anyone tell me if this was a back to back house and where the heck was it.

Many thanks. Evergreen


There is a Perrott Street in Winson Green which has several Victorian Houses. Maybe the 'st' was missed off the info.:)

Hi evergreen
Below is a map showing no 53 in red. this shows that the house was terrace with a very small garden in the front (or at least thats how I interpret it)

Thank you so much Wendy & Mike.

The info was from the 1901 census. The address location makes a lot more sense now, as 3 generations of my grandfathers worked as Weighing Machine Makers at W.T Avery which I think was by Soho.

Thanks again
