howard's place, Birmingham

Does anyone know where Howard or Howard's place was in Birmingham,
I found this address on a parish register entry for St Jude's church, Birmingham, 1842.
I assume it has long since gone, as i cant find it in my 1952 a-z of Birmingham.
thanks

Howard Place was used to describe a group of houses on the West side of Bristol road. It is not quite clear as to the extent of the group, and numbering and position vary slightly (in particular exactly where St Harrys Road was in relationship to it) In 1855 the street appears to have been divided up into groups of houses, and howard Place was nos 85-100 Bristol road. Between 1880 and 1883 there was a renumbering, with odd numbers one side, even the other. After renumbering, these numbers seem to correspond to nos 179 - 213 bristol Road. hope that's not too complicated. If its not clear then let me know

Thanks mikejee

Great stuff.

Thanks for your quick reply, there's just one question I'd like to ask and that is, how did you find that information so quickly ?, i googled it with not much luck, maybe i didn't look hard enough but it seems this is the place to ask.
thanks again

My 3rd great grandfather Joseph Rose and his wife Mary Haycock lived in Howard Place per 1861 census. I was up late trying to figure out what exactly Howard Place was and found this discussion - thanks for pointing me to what today would be 179-214 Bristol Rd.. His census record matches above except in Folio 53, not 54. It says "Howard Place - 34 houses" and then beside each family is groups them by "1 house", "2 house" and so on.
