Sullivan Family - Not found anywhere

I am having some difficulty in finding my relatives on my Grandmothers side of my family. Their family name is Sullivan. I am finding several hundred Sullivans at various Census dates but none of them seem to be related to my family.

My first difficulty in establishing their whereabouts is that I cannot seem to establish with any degree of certainty where the Registration Sub District of Pentonville is during the mid to late 1800's.

I have three birth certificates which give the registration district as being Pentonville, but searching the BMD, Pentonville is not mentioned as far as I can see.

Also searching the various UK Census records, I cannot find these individuals or their mother and father.

The complete family group as far as I know is :-

Jeremiah Sullivan (Head) born 1884 in Cork, Ireland.
Hannah Sullivan (nee Smith) born abt 1847
John Sullivan
James Daniel Sullivan (Son) born 1874, died 15 March 1931
George Sullivan (Son) born 1877, died 21 April 1938
William Sullivan (Son) born 14 Nov 1878, died 22 April 1906
Hannah Sullivan (Daughter) born 23 Jan 1880, died 19 Sept 1924
Lucy Sullivan (Daughter) born 27 July 1885, died 02 July 1927. My Grandmother.
Edward Sullivan (Son) born 5 March 1887.
Honora Elizabeth Sullivan (Daughter) born 26 Apr 1889, died 3 Sept 1939.

Can someone help me sort out where this family were living?

Many thanks
