street numbering

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

The early census enumerators’ returns and trade directories show that in the mid‐19th century the houses in most towns and nearly all villages were still not numbered. The fashion spread during the later 19th century, but it is common to find inconsistencies between one census return and the next, as houses were renumbered.
