Streets in Clerkenwell and Shoreditch Middlesex

Hope some one can help. I am trying to locate my Stubbs family in relation to Booths map. I know they moved to the Clerkenwell district of London in 1861 Thomas Stubbs was a brass turner living at 20 Weston Street, then in 1871 and 1881 he and his family moved to York Buildings. He then became an optical brass turner. His son was a compositor living in the Shoreditch area.

I was trying to gain some understanding of the area they lived in. Apparently Clerkenwell Green is where Fagin and the Artfull Dodger induct Oliver Twist in the art of pickpocketing. So this makes the area seem quite interesting so I wanted to find out more
