Hi everyone - My wife's maiden name was Wilkins and she was brought up in the Kirkstall area from 1942 until 1969. In the past, Stansfield Row was known by the locals as 'Dobbie Row' (also 'Dobby Row'). I have no idea where the nickname came from but the houses were mill workers' cottages. The houses were built around 1825 by the Stansfield family who had also constructed Burley Mills in 1799. In the 1900's, until after the second world war, people used the area as allotments and piggeries for growing vegetables and keeping some livestock. Some of my wife's ancestors occupied some of the houses in Stansfield Row and in 1900 lived at No. 32. Another side of her family was called Wilson and that family lived at No. 16 in 1871, No. 23 in 1881 and No. 44 from 1891 onwards. There is information on the internet under 'Dobbie Row Leeds' if you use a search engine. Ian
