    The burial took place at St Saviour's, Southwark on 18th August 1832.

    Thank you. :)

    In fairness, it didn't help that the name was shadowed by another entry. :)

    America Street still exists. It wasn't there in 1795 but it was there in 1819 (screen shot below).

    The only reason I mention this is that in 1795 Great Guildford Street was called Bandy Leg Walk :D. So unPC - so much more interesting!! (Time for bed methinks....).

    Perhaps it was changed from Bandy Leg to America after the bandy legged cowboys in America.
