You are in [Places] [Charnham Street Properties] [15 Charnham Street]
[-->14 Charnham Street] [-->16 Charnham Street]

Summary:

This dwelling stood "behind" 14 Charnham Street, the shop fronting onto the road.

Caveat:

The history of ownership and occupation of the properties in this part of Charnham Street is very speculative. Records are sketchy, and confusing. This page is the current "best attempt" to clarify the history of these properties, but much further work still needs to be done. It is possible that the historic boundaries do not match the modern ones.

Timeline:

1794 Francis Map: No evidence of this property on the map.

1819 Enclosure Award Map: Properties appear on this map (14 near road, 15 behind).

1851 Census:
     #54: I think this is Kennett Cottages lodging house.
     #55: Cicely Walker (56), Laundress, 1 daughter, 1 grand-daughter, 3 lodgers. (I think this is 12 Charnham St)
     #56: John Osmond (64), baker, wife Sarah (62), 1 grand-son. (I think this is 13 Chanham St)

     #58: John Holdway (51) innkeeper (sic!), wife Sarah (49), 2 sons, 1 niece, 2 lodgers. (I think this is 14 Charnham St). If this was an inn at the time, it was probably 14 combined with 15 Charnham Street?
