Moor street was a very short distance to the north east of St Marys church. The parish records for St Marys has lots of Nuttall's and a lot from Oswaldtwistle.
A short distance to the west of this church is St Pauls church. Might take 15 minutes or more to walk from Moor street to St Pauls church.
I could not locate a Daisy Green in Blackburn.
Have sent you Moor street map section and one showing St Pauls and Moor street in 1894.
The name Daisy Green in a census makes me think its a small hamlet near Oswaldtwistle. It looks like people in Oswaldtwistle took their children to be baptised in Blackburn.
All my best

>I'm trying to tie down my greatx3 grandmother in the 1841 census, before she married in 1842. On the 3 census that I have sightings of her, she states either Daisy Green or Oswaldtwistle as her place of birth and having spotted a Betty Nuttall living on this street, the same as a John Nuttall (this name is quoted as her father on her marriage certificate to Thomas Haworth), I was trying to suss out if the
geography made this possible. I think I have her baptism in 1822 in St Pauls, Blackburn to a John and Margaret Nuttall, but I can't seem to pin down where either Moor Street or Daisy Green is in the area. <snip>
