Tile Kilns: 1861 census for the workers' cottages

workers' cottages

Some of the workers' cottages at the Tile Kilns

This page shows an extract from the 1861 census for the workers' cottages at the Tile Kilns in Green Lanes, administratively under Tottenham. The coloured blocks show the separate households in the cottages. Also shown are some of the adjacent households in Green Lanes where pottery workers lived. All have the same address, ie there are no names or numbers to the cottages. Note how family lines can be traced, in that many of the surnames of the previous census are still evident - in particular as far as our family history is concerned: Cole, Colley, Pettit, Sharp and Dean.

For a burial record for anyone on this page, it is worth trying Abney Park Cemetery in the nearby Stoke Newington.

Disclaimer: Whereas I have taken all reasonable precautions while transcribing, inaccuracies do occur, and I can take no responsibility for them.
