Help information wanted about Waterside in Battersea(?) area of London


Well-known member
My 2x Gt Grandfather William Hoare in shown in the 1851 census aged 60 with his family living at Waterside, there is no reference to a Parish, town or borough on the census form. The occupation column lists him as 'Bricklayer/Pauper'. I guess 'Waterside' is a workhouse or similar institution. Does anyone have any information about 'Waterside'?

Things must have improved for him because in the 1861 census he is shown living at 6 Canterbury Place Battersea, occupation Bricklayer.

Any help will be acknowledged.
