Hepzibah that could well be it. There is a small sign on the corner of the house which I can't quite make out, although it might say Old Workhouse, or is that me wishing it did  ;)

Also could you possibly translate the address in this image for me please? It's from 1881

RG 11/1889 folio 57 page 13:

Sax Road

In meadows

Samuel Boast was living somewhere in the meadows near the road from Rendham to Saxmundham (often called Sax locally).

Cheers David!

I hope that means in a cottage not actually in the meadow?

I have another ancestor who lived "In the cotton factory yard" I was dismayed until I found a sort of tied dwelling set up.

Quite possibly the same "Cottage in fields" where ag. lab. John Boast and his family were living in 1851 (HO 107/1802 folio 750 verso page 27).

 :) Yes, never thought of that, John was his brother.

The only one of this whole big family I can't find is Sams son Gissing
