1881 CENSUS DATA FOR RAVENSDEN CHURCH END.

 

VALENTINE COTTAGES

 

Valentine Cottages do not exist in Ravensden today - there were 3 of them.  Looking at the old maps, is it possible that they were the cottages that are now "The Laurels" and "Killara"?  If anyone knows, please contact Jane Ferguson.

 

In the first cottage (coming from Wilden) lived Robert Horrell, a general labourer.  He was 64 and was born in Ravensden.  His wife was Sarah (described as a Labourer's wife).  She was 63 and was born in Pertenhall.

 

The second Valentine Cottage was uninhabited.

 

The third Valentine Cottage housed Alfred Ives, his wife and daughter.  Alfred was 22 and a farm labourer who was born in Ravensden.  His wife Mary Ann was 20, born in Renhold.  Their daughter (Mary E. was 1 year old and had been born in Ravensden).

 

CHURCH END FARM

Church End Farm is the next building after Valentine Cottages.  It looks as if this is the farm on the left-hand side of the map which no longer exists today. Again, please let Jane know if you have other information.   It was inhabited by Daniel Jordan aged 45, from Cople, and his wife Eliza aged 41, from Willington.
