House Schedules for Garndiffaith and Abersychan in the 1850's
« on: Tuesday 17 April 18 09:58 BST (UK) »
I'm trying to find how close a number of families were living by each other. The most I have to go off is the Schedule number on the 1851 Census.

Garndiffaith Schedules: 29, 93, 106, 180

Abersychan Schedules: 63, 113, 139

Pontnewynydd (St Luke District) Schedule: 12, No 2 Butlers houses. (*Police station house was schedule 10* which itself was next to the Underwoods Cottages)

They all sound like they could be close to one another. I just can't place where in general area that they were in. Does someone here know the area better?

The only thing that you can do is get a map and try to put schedule numbers against geography (a named farm/ the rectory/ the police station). A sensible enumerator would have minimized the mileage required, but it doesn't tell you how far number 100 was from household 101. (2 yards or 1/2 mile)

Abersychan and Garndiffaith are adjoining settlements so there wouldn't have been a great deal of distance between the streets mentioned.  If you look at this site:

http://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/side-by-side/#zoom=13&lat=51.7295&lon=-3.0389&layers=1&right=BingHyb

you can select old maps and current satellite images of the area side by side.  It's brilliant and very easy to use, and you can zoom in to see the street names etc.
