Offenham 1871

Description of Enumeration District: “The whole of the parish of Offenham, including Blackminster, Bennetts Hill, the Cox, Tredwells in the Fields, New Town, Rock House and new cottages at the foot of Blackminster Lane.”

Schedules 12 and 13 have an address of Blackminster; schedule 14 is just listed as Farm House. It is likely that these are the same houses as in the 1861 census, ie the semi-detached cottages known today as Rose Cottage and Ivanhoe, and The Old Farmhouse, on the east side of Birmingham Road.

Enumerator: Walter Howley
