Default Some information about bawdy-houses in 19th century London

I thought there was a forum for Victorian information, but I no longer see it.

This link is to actress Alex Kingston's episode of "Who Do You Think You Are?" in which she learned that an ancestor, widowed and with children, began to operate "lodging-houses" in 1827, which seem from police records and news accounts to have been "disorderly" or "bawdy-houses"-- yet the woman died in the 1870s with a fair amount of a legacy in property and houses.

I thought it was an interesting account of why some women with Independence and intelligence would want to stay single and turn to that business.
