Hi

My great, great grandmother lived in Steedman Street, Walworth, London for a while in 1878.

I have researched the street and I was looking at the 1891 census and there were 3 families originally from Norwich, Norfolk living down the street. One was a shop owner. There were a lot of Norfolk people in London in Victorian times but to have 3 families from 1 city in 1 small South London street, wow.

They should have renamed Steedman Street Norwich Overspill Street. :D
