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.

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 STRAY house numbers for which it was not possible to match House names with House numbers over the 5 census periods.
