Finding ownership in 1881
« on: Friday 14 July 06 22:12 BST (UK) »
Is there a way of finding who lived somewhere on the 1881 census?  I'm interested in the ownership of a farm at Little Atwick in East Yorkshire.  It was owned by Ralph Foster until his death and then went to his son William.  I know William died unmarried in the 1870s, and would like to find out who took the farm over.  There isn't a way to do this on the LDS site, so I would welcome any help.

What was the name of the farm?  I'll have a look for you.

The farm itself is Little Atwick.  It's near the village of Atwick.  Thanks, Nell.

Hmm.  No Little Atwick Farm, but there is Little Atwick, Moor House.  It was occupied by one John Brankley and his family.  He is recorded as a Farmer of 146 acres and employed two boys.  This is is the schedule before the vicarage.  According to the old maps site (OS map from 1855, it was known as Moor House or Little Atwick  :) )

Reference is RG11/4790/86 p2.  Do you need the full details or that enough for you to go on?

Thank you, both of you.  I was keen to know whether it stayed in the ownership of the Foster family, but clearly it didn't.  We're keen to go there and see whether the building on the present-day map is the old one or a modern replacement.

Using the position of Little Atwick on OldMaps as a reference, can you find it on Google Earth? You might be able to tell if it is a old or modern roof!

I did try looking at Atwick, but whether it's my dial-up connection or what, it wouldn't focus to building level.   :)

For those who might be interested, the friend for whom I was doing this research went to Little Atwick today to look at her ancestral home.  Just in time.  It's the original building, reroofed, but now derelict.  It was apparently abandoned in the 20th century because the owners didn't want to live there, and was recently set on fire by local children.  It's being swallowed up by brambles.  Sad, but at least she got to see it.
