Feb 26 2012, 04:34:19 Wood Street

Kevenhuller Skinner's address is given as being "at the corner of Bedford Berry in Wood-street". This is in Old Bailey Proceedings: Accounts of Criminal Trials, 17th February 1773. As Kevenhuller was an ancestor of mine I went to Bedfordbury but was unable to find a "Wood St." Would "Bedfordbury" and "Bedford Berry" be the same place? And where might Wood St. have gone?

I suspect that there has to have been a mistake in the transcript. "Wood St" should have read "New St". This latter address is given in Kevenhuller Skinner's evidence in support of the actor, Charles Mackllin.
