Coote’s Cottages

History of Coote's Cottages

Probable location. The existence of Coote and Warren’s Coal Wharf later in the century at this location suggests that this is where the cottages were listed in the 1861 census. There were several unnumbered cottages at the time.

1861:

William Butler, head, GLR labourer, b Trumpington

Elizabeth, 41, b Trumpington

Ellen, 18, b Trumpington

Edward, 15, railway servant, b Cambridge

George, 13, b Cambridge

Sarah, 11, b Cambridge

Charles, 8, b Chesterton

Frederick, 5, b Cambridge

Emma, 3, b Cambridge

Alice, 11 mos, b Cambridge

William, 20. engine fitter, b Trumpington

Soon after this William and Family moved to the Crown in Hills Road where he became the licensee.
