SUMMERHILL ROAD CENSUS RETURNS (EVEN NUMBERS)

 

 

The following tables list extracts from the recorded census reports for Summerhill Road for the 1861, 1871, 1881,1891, 1901 and 1911 Census's. Prior to 1901 the addresses were identified by house name rather than house number.. It is a shame that these wonderful House Names have been either forgotten or obscured over the passage of time.

It would also appear that in 1861 the early development of Summerhill Road was known as 'Green Park'.  Note that the houses in Summerhill Road were developed over many years.Therefore not all houses are shown from 1861. The first entry date shoul help indicate roughly when constructed.

If required Ray Swain at 11 Summerhill Road has full copies of the census returns for all 5 Census reports. These would provide details on ages, places of birth and professions of all members of the household as recorded by the census enumerator.

These are the EVEN house numbers. At the back of this section there are some STRAY entries for which it was not possible to match House names with House numbers over the 5 census periods. 

 For photographs of some of these old houses visit 'Summerhill Road - Architectural Styles'  from MENU
