Wise [???] Passage

History of Wise [???] Passage

Although the position of this passage between nos 10 and 9 Jesus Lane seems clear, the handwriting in the 1861 census is not and is reproduced here:

Wise ??? Passage, Jesus Lane

(1) Sophia Hutt, 71, late college servant, b Cambridge

(2) John Lingwood, 32, stable man, b Suffolk

(3) Mary Duckings, 70, late college kitchen helper, b Burwell
