  1. I found Charles H Staples, born circa 1868 in Codnor. In 1901 census he's living with wife Elizabeth at Ainsworth Terrace in the Meadows. There are also apparently several other members of the same family born around that time. They all end up living in various parts of Nottingham.

Gladstone Street and Ewart Road may also have a Birkin connection as he was President
