Houses in the 1848 Tithe Award and their 1848 Occupants

Compiled by David Dalrymple-Smith, © Copyright November 2004
See also Schedule for 1920 Sale of Property


I (David) have used the Tithe Award Schedule and its Map to identify all the houses in 1848 and their occupants (all tenants). Using the Census Returns of 1851, and occasionally of 1841, I have found out more about them and their occupations. I have then used a modern map to find the present houses and matched them with the 1848 occupants. There may be one or two errors with people with similar names. Many houses will have been renovated or completely rebuilt since 1848.

The column headed ‘Rutland No (1920)’ refers to the allocation on the above-mentioned Schedule for 1920 Sale of Property, if the property was sold then, otherwise its Owner. 'DofR', 'DofD' = Duke of Rutland, Devonshire.
