Name of farm
« on: Saturday 29 August 20 21:39 BST (UK) »
I know, it's me again. I really do try and solve my own problems before I come here. I even tried to find this farm on other census but with no joy.

What do you think this farm name is. It's in Nottingham, if that helps.

I think it's something like S***aths Farm, but I'm, not sure.

Thank you

Can you please give the census reference so we can look at the whole page.

Yes, sorry.

The farm name is next to George Locker, born in Arnold Nottinghamshire in 1796.

I don't actually know how to give a reference for a census.

1851 census.

HO 107/2128/242/11

Looks like Sneaths Farm to me.

You can usually find the reference on the transcription, but I always take it from the actual image. You should always record the reference, often itís the easiest way for other people to find what youíre referring to.  :)

It looks like Sneathís to me too, but I cannot see it anywhere on either of these maps!

A much clearer image on FindMyPast.

Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
