1911 census (1 of 6)

Extracts Relevant to our Community

My great-grandparents, Adam and Ellen Albert, lived at Maple Villa, Station Road (Schedule No. 152 below) from about 1909 to 1915. I have been trying to identify the location of this property, and hence am pleased to see the results of the work which is being done to identify the shops on the High Road – although of a different era.

This is has spurred me on to complete the table below which is taken from the 1911 Census Enumerator’s Summary Book for Billericay Registration District No. 193, Wickford Registration Sub-District No. 2, Enumeration District No. 7, and the individual census sheet returns for properties in Station Road. The enumerator was J.H.Parkinson.

The table is split into the pages from the Enumerator’s Summary and the heading for the Civil Parish and Ecclesiastical Parish is given in capital letters for each page. An “*” indicates a building without a Schedule No.

“High Road” is called “Station Road” on all the census documents except for Schedule No. 150, where its location is referred to as “13 High Street, Station Road”. Some individual return sheets have been completed with reference to “High Road”, and these are added in brackets where appropriate in the following table.

I had hoped that the Schedule Nos. would go down one side and then up the other for Station Road to give the positions of the buildings. But they don’t!

I hope this table is helpful, and there are not too many transcription errors. And I would love to hear of any information about Maple Villa and my great-grandparents.
