1901 Leftovers: Grimwood or Greenwood?
« on: Thursday 13 April 06 23:12 BST (UK) »
Have just finished transcribing my first 1901 census page.  I was a bit unsure on a couple of points so had a look on 1901census online to see what their transcribers had written and came across a bit of a problem.

A surname I had entered as Grimwood, they have as Greenwood.  Having grown up in Suffolk I know there are a lot of Grimwood's, especially in Ipswich.  I have attached the name for people's opinions.  For me there looks to be a dot, suggesting an i and therefore Grimwood.  Any thoughts on what I should enter in my leftovers spreadsheet appreciated.

Hi.

If the head is named George and the address is 38 Gibson St, then
it is Grimwood.

Hi Clare

Well done on the transcription front - more power to your elbow!  :)

It looks like GRIMWOOD to me too. 

Do you have access to other censuses?  I would be inclined to check the family on the 1891 and perhaps 1881 to see whether the writing is any clearer.

kind regards, Arranroots  ;)
