bullet  Noted events in his life were:

Alt. Name: James. 72

Residence, 25 Jul 1847, Albert Street, Bermondsey, Surrey, England. 67 At the time of his marriage, he was living on Albert St., according to the marriage record.

Albert Street is now Stanworth Street, according to It's all new (ugly) apartments.

Occupation: Tanner, 1851, Bermondsey, Surrey, England. 65 An interesting thing to look at is the "Charles Booth's London Poverty maps and police notebooks" from 1898-9 in which John Berry was a tanner. Bermondsey was, the map shows, an area of poor families, earning about 18-21 shillings a week for a moderately sized family. The tannery appears on the map next to the work house. While the map shows it to be a poor area, the map legend lists two categories below "poor," so it could be worse.

bullet  Marriage Notes:

I didn't write down the source of this info, but as I remember it, Belle Radcliffe has an original paper showing this information.

Alternatively, a Louisa Breeden shows in the "England & Wales, FreeBMD Marriage Index: 1837-1915" as having married in the district of W. Ham. The marriage record for this one is in Vol. 4a, page 182.
