The enumerator's order of recording in 1841:

Foster Place
Gate head
Burntedge, Beding Edge
Hedbrook or Hedge brook
Thuskin Holes
Woodroyd hill

Thuskin Holes is listed in contemporary gazetteers as a single home or a hamlet, 6 miles south of Huddersfield and 8 miles from Penistone.

Apart from Hedbrook, all those places are visible on the 1854 map.

Wonderful, this is looking pretty conclusive. It's amazing what can be achieved here within 24 hours!

Zoom in and check eastern edge of map for"Foolstone" (off map). "Wood Royd Hill Lane" runs North/South West to the "Victoria Tavern". You'll also see "Bedding Edge".

Thanks again, but I was after a picture or link to the property sale advert if possible. I'm putting together an 'illustrated' family history document for my Grandmother to enjoy and these details make all the difference. That's also why I'm extra keen to identify precise locations so that I can include pictures and maps.

I puzzled over the "source" you were after. I began by directing you to the sites where the Leeds Intelligencer adverts could be found - then revised my post thinking you were after map details.

The item can be found on FindMyPast (newspapers) or British Newspaper Archive (a subscription site)

Great, thanks. Both sources will be most helpful, so not to worry.

Looking at the first entry on the 1841 after Abraham at Burntedge, it really does look like the enumerator wrote : "Hedbrook or Hedgebrook".  However, the Huddersfield Chronicle 04 August 1860 is saying "Sledbrook".
