  • What was 7 Upper Hamilton Terrace is now Marlborough Lodge, on the south-east corner of Hamilton Terrace and Marlborough Place. I have been unable to trace any mention of there being a ladies school at this address.

  • I have a very old book on St. John’s Wood it’s in my daughters loft, I will get it out as it gives details of Alexandra road which was a really beautiful road, I used to do my paper round there it was a blue plaque road as well. Sadly redeveloped does anyone else remember Alexandra road

  • Hi, I have a relation living at the “School House Charlbert Street” on the 1911 census, St John’s Wood. I can’t see where this might have been. He was a window cleaner, so that discounts any connection between him and a “school” and I can see 3 other families at the same address, so I’m thinking something that was once a school, but then converted into private housing. Might anyone be able to pinpoint the building?

  • Could you give me your relation’s name and roughly where his home was in Charlbert St – is it next to an even numbered house or an odd number – I could look him up on findmypast and see if there are any clues that will help, many thanks Bridget Clarke

  • Really interesting website, many thanks. Does anyone know which number now in Hamilton Terrace is the house that was in 1851 number 7 Upper Hamilton Terrace? In 1851 it was a ladies school and the guitarist Catharina Pelzer was a boarder there. I am researching Victorian musicians.

  • Hi could you please tell me where Alpha Road was?

  • If you go north up Park Road from Baker Street towards St John’s Wood Church Alpha Road was roughly level with the mosque on the opposite side of the road – all the original St John’s Wood villas were destroyed when the railway line came into Marylebone station.
