Knackers Hole
« on: Friday 24 March 06 15:53 GMT (UK) »
Hi all,

I have an address in the 1851 census for a family given as:

Knackers Hole, Ewings St, Tiverton, Devon

Does this mean something or is it just a house name?

All thoughts greatly appreciated

I guess it could be...the head of the family is listed as a farm labourer though - maybe he had lodgings at a pub?

Hi
There was a place or farm called Knackers Hole near Cove, 5 miles north of Tiverton
I'm not sure about Ewings St. though
If you are still interested tell me the Name of the person so I can look at the census.

Blimey, this is a blast from the past post!

I'll go find the ref for the census (this was posted before I realised just how important it was!!)

Thanks for the replies :)
