Hi everyone, thanks for your input. Have attached the originals - I'm transcribing Census 1891. I have read Partish and Parlish but can't read them as Port Ash. Appreciate your help

Cheers
Meegan

FindMyPast transcribes the middle one as Kents Lane??   Maybe Parlish/Portash is all in the way it is locally pronouced

Hi again
Think this is Becketts?

Agree re Becketts and it is shown on the map that Chempat posted https://maps.nls.uk/view/106032568#zoom=7&lat=8190&lon=7534&layers=BT

So looking at the enumerator's description of the district, I think it is definitely Becketts Lane.  (There is even a chap named Beckett living on that lane on page 5)

You could probably plot the places named on a map.  Kents Hill, Frog Lane, Ridgeway, Barberry, The Street, Mooray are all places still valid today.  I acknowledge that it doesn't look like Portash, but I think that is what it ought to be and it is part of the ED.  It looks more like Portash on the description page. It stretches as far as Knap Farm which is a bit further away than Portash.
