Queen Adelaide Yard and Cattermoul's Yard
Mrs H. Shanks has written requesting information on Queen Adelaide Yard and Cattermoule Yard, which used to be in Pitt Street, Norwich:
My congratulations on a truly wonderful web site, which has given me great information and pleasure. I would be grateful to hear if you know of any photographic or documentary evidence relating to Queen Adelaide Yard, behind number 53 Pitt Street. My ancestors (the Barnard family) lived at No. 2 for decades. My great grandmother was a scholar there and married at St Augustines church (a corporal in the 8th Hussars based at Cavalry Barracks). Her sister, an army widow, lived in Cattermoules Yard, Pitt Street. I know that the Barnard family were involved in silk weaving, also that my great great grandfather was a crepe dyer. Any information you may have about living, working and social conditions in St Augustines during the last half of the 19th Century would be very welcome. There are so many gaps in my knowledge, although fewer now that I have discovered your website. With best wishes and many thanks. [18.8.10]
