1891 census, Ludlow: Street name?
« on: Wednesday 06 June 18 11:01 BST (UK) »
Help requested from someone with local knowledge.  1891 census has William Talbot and family at what might be 'Cow Street' in Ludlow.  The reference is RG12/2081, fo 23, p13.  The summary page 1 does not help.
Is that the right street name please?

Is he married to Sarah?

1881 has Corve St if this is the same family  :)  Can see how that might come out as Cow.

There is a Corve St in Ludlow if you do a search.  Hope this is correct.

I also think it's Corve Street.

Here's an entry from a couple of page back:

Thank you both.  I am sure you are correct as Cow seemed very unlikely!

It did look very much like Cow Street. It wasn’t until I went back a couple of pages that the light began to dawn.
