Re: Golden Square #unitedkingdom


Hello Duccio

Unsure whether this has been suggested before, but I have family who lived
in Silver St, 'Golden Square'.
Golden Square is near Piccadilly Circus and Regent St.
Good luck with your research.

Dear Duccio,

I did an all event search for just the last name TEDESCHI on FreeBMD
for the period 1850-1900 and there seems to be two distinct
geographical areas where the name appears, London (principally Fulham
and the east end) and intriguingly Walsall and Wolverhampton, two
towns just northwest of Birmingham. I'm sure you've done this already.

Even though I was born in London and grew up there, nothing about it
recalls any area being known as the Golden District (unless it could
have been a euphemism for the Yiddish phrase "golden medina.")

>from my canal restoration days, I recall that not far >from where you
live, in the Cotswolds is the Golden Valley. But this might be a red

Though the Fulham entries begin with the late 1880s some ten years
after Anna was born, I am inclined to think it might have been said
as a euphemism even though it was stated on the marriage certificate
(though of course, I'm more than willing to be proven wrong).
