I don't know why but one that always brings a smile to my face is "custard powder manufacturer". It just sounds such a happy occupation.

Family History Beginners Board / Finding a census reference - Completed

I have had a look in Ancestry and Family Search but to no avail.

I would like to look at a particular page on the 1841 census and have a reference. Unfortunately I can't see how I can use it to find the page. Does anyone know of a way?

Hello again,

In the 1841 census he is in West Row not far from Tickle Toby Yard. The Tickle Toby is still on the High Street/Market Place with its yard down the side and behind.

I think the general consensus is that West Row comprises the buildings down the west side of the High Street/Market Place and East Row those down the east so there is the possibility he is at the same address.

PurdeyB, I think you would be correct about it being Hunt & Wrigley. As you say it can't be opposite as it's the pub but I suppose it could be a corner at the other end, one of which would be unrecognisable today but unlikely as away from the main street. I will have a look for a date stone.

I too was wondering about the post and "post offices". Given that stamps were introduced in the 1840s it presumably became a more generally accessible service. And as you say rail. The post probably switched from coaches to rail at some point in the first half of the 19th century. I was also wondering if earlier "post offices" were actually in the coaching houses.

Gillian F's ancestor wasn't a Post Master in 1841 as far as we know. Maybe it was a new post. Pure speculation though, next will have to read a history of the Post Office. That's the thing with this hobby, there's always new avenues to explore.  :)

Sorry, I missed Purdey's reply. The 1849 report does mention a Post Office Yard but doesn't give a location. It may be that the Post Office didn't have a satisfactory "home" given that one was purpose built a few years later on Friarage Street.
