History of Middleton Terrace Cherry Hinton Road

Middleton Terrace is another of the first strips of artisan houses that were occupied by 1891.

We know from the 1891 census that the occupants were:

1.Mendham Atkin 39 joiner, Mary 40, Edith 15 dressmaker, Reginald 14, Winifred 13, Florence 7, Grace Cuttriss niece 3.

2. Robert Proctor 44 engine stoker, Ellen 40, Frank Watkinson lodger 2. The age of their lodger is surprising but Frank Cyril Watkinson was still living with Robert and Ellen in 1911 age 20 in Kent according to the 1911 census.
