Rick, it's very helpful if you can give the census reference.
Presumably this is the family?

Lower Cambridge Street, St Pancras
Name: Ann Reany
Estimated birth year: abt 1806
Spouse's name: Lake
Where born: Cambridgeshire, England
Civil parish: St Pancras
Ecclesiastical parish: St Thomas
Registration district: Pancras
Sub-registration district: Camden Town
ED, institution, or vessel: 11
Household schedule number: 182
Lake Reany 59
Ann Reany 55
Elisa Reany 23
Emma Reany 21
I would agree with Ancestry's transcription of Cambridgeshire for Ann's
place of birth.
The Mendicity Society was a charitable organisation set up to deal with
begging on the streets, vagrants etc. There's a note here (from 1850), but
Googling will find you a lot more information.

Can any one help decipher my Gr Gr Grandmother's place of Birth from the
I have her listed in my Tree as
Born: Abt. 1806 Location unknown
Married: Luke Reaney 1827 St Mary's St Marylebone
Died: Unconfirmed, but probably 1st quarter of 1873 in Hanover Square.
Also listed in the same census, her Husband Luke's, occupation is described
as a Constable in Mendicity Office can any one tell me where or what this
is. I have a VERY limited knowledge of London Geography & rely heavily on an
old London Street Directory
