Bonhill Enumeration Districts
« on: Saturday 30 September 17 10:46 BST (UK) »
Hello

We have an ancestor, William Forrest (b1824), who is living in Arden Cottages, Bonhill, at the time of the 1891 census. It would help us a lot to know where Arden Cottages is situated. The census gives us:

ED:    10
Household schedule number:    60
LINE:    14
Roll:    CSSCT1891_157

However, we don't know how to use that information. I am aware the the enumerators route is in there somewhere and I would hope that if we could recognise nearby places it would lead to Arden Cottages.

How do we find the information, please.

Any help gratefully received.

Thanks for your response.

Looking at the map Arden on the side of Loch Lomond looks a long way from Bonhill. I'm sure it must have been closer to Bonhill.

I owe you an apology. I've just done some googling and come across this:

There are road signs for the hamlet of Arden on the A82, though it is now virtually part of the Duck Bay leisure complex, and the likely site of 'Arden Cottages" is a derelict terrace of one or two double-storey houses [being renovated, Summer 1999] very close to a number of wooden "holiday chalets"
