Tile Kilns: 1881 census for the workers' cottages

workers' cottages

Some of the workers' cottages at the Tile Kilns

This page shows an extract from the 1881 census for the cottages at what was previously known as the Tile Kilns and now known as 'The Cottages at Potteries, Green Lanes, Tottenham'. The coloured blocks show the separate households in the workers' cottages. 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 earlier censuses are still evident, in particular, as far as our family history is concerned: Cole, Sharp and Dean. However Colley has moved on.

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.
