Hello Adrian

I have found if you limit the age to new-borns or one year olds on a place
search you may find the street you were looking for (there must have been
babies nearly everywhere in 1881!) and then search the neighbours for the
number you are looking for - slightly time consuming on a large area but it
does work.
