Without a doubt the best London map site I have found is
As well as the "Harben Dictionary of the City of London" - a gazetteer and
history of over 6000 street names originally published in 1918 - it has a
great series of historical maps - including a couple from the 1700s, 1830,
1862. Most of the maps have reasonable street indexes - in one case all the
'streets' and 'roads' but no others e.g. 'row'. The map quality and
resolution is excellent - even though this is a site that is offering the
maps for sale.
The Victorian Street Index www.gendocs.demon.co.uk/lon-str.html is
interesting, but you need to have an idea of 'where' your street is (or
possibly, was) in order to ensure you have the correct one.
Hope this helps

Subject: [British Jewry] Emery's place Spitalfields, where?
I am trying to find where Emery's place was (1871) I have a wedding cert
for Anna Duis married Simon Wennink (I think, bit hard to read) married
29/6/1870 with their address (for bride & groom) as 3 Emery's place
The Duis (Duits/Duitz/Dytes) family came from Amsterdam to UK around
1866 according to Dutch records. Jews Free school records show their
address as 4 Bell Lane in 1872, 1874, 1876. 1881 census has them at 1
Shepherd Street Buildings.
I am trying to find them on the 1871 census, they do not appear to be at
4 Bell lane (unless there were more than one Bell Lane's in the area)
and I can't find Emery' Place on the index. I have also tried Ordinance
Survey Map 1873 but can't see it although in fairness it was extremely
hard to read.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
