TILT, Tadworth and Kingswood, 1841 & '51
« on: Saturday 28 July 18 17:33 BST (UK) »
Please can anyone help me to locate the whereabouts of Thomas and Ann TILT more accurately?  In the 1841 census they are living in Kingswood, I believe alongside the turnpike road, with their daughter Elizabeth and son-in-law Edward PRESTON.  Thomas TILT is described as a farmer, and the fifth member of the household was an 8 year old, Nathaniel SHOVE, described as a cow boy, so perhaps Thomas was keeping stock on the common. 

By 1851 the TILT couple are living on their own, in north Tadworth, and Thomas is described as a retired farmer.  Thomas died in 1852 and Ann a year later, and they are both buried in the churchyard of St Andrew's Kingswood.

Please can anyone who understands the lie of the land better than I do advise me whether these are two separate addresses, or one and the same?  I should like to imagine Thomas and Ann surrounded by lavender fields, but perhaps they were in the wrong place for that, or perhaps lavender was not grown commercially at that time? 

With thanks for any ideas,

Beetle.

According to Wikipedia they are literally across the road from each other, separated by the A217.

Thank you, amondg.  It is certainly hard to cross the A217 these days!
