The 1861 Census Surname Index of Pendleton and Pendlebury (published by M/c
& Lancs FHS) shows Back Richmond Street in ED 2, this equates with RG
9/2902 folios 17 - 35.
I only found nos 1 and 2 for Back Richmond St. There is no
HENDERSON/ENDERSON ref in that surname index.
There was a Richmond St in Ardwick, off Syndall St. Syndall St ran between
Stockport Road and Hyde Road. Turning off Stockport Road into Syndall St
Richmond St was the 4th on the right. It was a short street which lead to
Tiverton St .
