I did think of that one, but there are just open fields in that area on the 1860s map, and a football pitch and footpaths on the 1890s one, so I think the name for the (20th century?) street is just coincidental.

There is a St. Mary's Road in modern-day Gillingham, running parallel to Richmond Road, from Saunders Street down to Clifton Road. Related perhaps?

Does anyone know where St Mary's Place was in New Brompton?

I have found it listed in the 1855 Post Office Directory, where there is a listing for a John Smith at No. 1 and a dat school run by Emma Chalken at No. 8.

1858 Melville's Directory lists John Smith, Mrs Elizabeth Mitchell, and Emma Chalken's Day School (no numbers).

I can't find it in any later directories.
