Does anyone have a map showing the location of Barker's Yard, Norfolk Street? It seems to have been on the north side, about half way between Chapel Street and Albert Street.

:D ....... I agree with TG, it must be Parkers Yard, names of yards did have a habit of changing with time

Thanks, Teri & Paul. :) I was working from the 1881 census where the transcription seems to match the handwritten entry, but perhaps the enumerator misheard what he was told.
