93 Camden Street, Camden Town, London

The Warhurst Family of London in Census Returns

A row of houses on Camden Street between Pratt Street and St Martin’s Close was formerly named St Stephen’s Terrace. The name change to Camden Street was introduced in July 1863. Directory information before and after the name change was found in Simpsons Street Directory of St Pancras, 1862, and The St Pancras Directory, 1864:

Name 1862   directory 1864   directory
John Lovegrove 4 St Stephen’s Terrace     91 Camden Street    
Joseph Warhurst       5 St Stephen’s Terrace 93 Camden Street

93 Camden Street is the corner house on the right – four stories high and a basement.
An entrance is by stairs leading to the basement.
The first door from the right is the entrance to 91 Camden Street.
The next photo of the side of 93 Camden Street facing St Martin’s Close shows an entrance door to 93 Camden Street from St Martin’s Close and the bricked-in windows. (A purpose of bricked-in windows was to avoid the window tax that was scrapped in 1851.)

The next two photos are views of All Saints Church opposite 93 Camden Street.
On the right of the photo below is the side of 93 Camden Street facing St Martin’s Close.

The church was built for the Church of England and in 1948 became Greek Orthodox to serve the large Greek speaking community of post World War II Camden Town.
