No, but Kingsland (Road, Dalston) is the area to the NW of Hackney and N
of Shoreditch, where those who had made it moved. The Kingsland road was
a wide street with a nice class of business premises in (one auctioneer
there had several Venetian blinds in his office in the 1860s - so you
can tell it was classy.) Went down later on, but OK in Victorian times.
