High Street / Church End, Long Stanton

History of houses on High Street

1871 The following list seems to correspond roughly with the 1881 list of occupants

Joseph Neal, 56, ag.lab., b Long Stanton


Phillip Rignell, 44, ag.lab., b Long Stanton


John Rignell, 48, ag.lab., b Long Stanton


Charles Shipp, 24, ag.lab., b Long Stanton


Stephen Brundell, 52, blacksmith, b Norfolk

1881 This census is quite vague on the location of houses in Stanton St Michael. ‘New Road’ and ‘Rd’ are difficult to identify with later names. Not only that, but this stretch of road seems to have been covered twice in different census returns for 1881! There may have been some confusion as  to where the boundaries between the parishes lay.
