Barn Street Aston

Hi Astoness,
Thanks for your reply. The best I can trace is actually in what is digbeth, close to the dogs home. It also runs off Milk street. My Grandad lived in Barn Street and married a girl from milk street. Almost neighbours, I guess.
These address get confusing as they seem to be often miss spelt and the districts change

I am looking for help please. One of my ancestors Carey Burton (1802-1878) was a shopkeeper at 45 Barn Street, Birmingham from at least 1841 until her death in 1878. She never married, nor did her sister Jemima Burton (b1808) who lived with her and presumably worked in the shop with her. This is not specifically a genealogy enquiry because I already know quite a lot about the family although anything related would be a bonus. Their father was Joseph Burton (1768-1841), a metal button turner originally of Cook St, St Phillip's, but latterly of Barn Street. Nor is this a request to check trade directories because I have already done that and she appears in many. My hope is that somebody will be able to put some "flesh on the bones". For example shopkeeper, but what type? Any old photographs of 45 Barn Street? I have looked it upon Google maps and it now looks like typical east Birmingham "light industrial" use

This may of be some help. On her death the shop is described as a provision shop. These small local shops were common at this time, and indeed up till just after WW2

Any help would be appreciated

Can't find a Little Barn St. Found a Little Ann Street that has a junction with Barn St.

The record is from a burial in the chapelry of st Mary Birmingham and it definitely has her address as Little followed by what really looks like barn street.

It ran between Great Barr St & Watery Lane in Bordesley. Not very close to St Mary's but that doesn't mean much.
