1891 Census Returns
Queen Street Barton upon Humber

This research was undertaken for the Victorian Day held during Arts Week in June 2001. It still needs to be completed with place of origin, analysed and compared with the 1901 Census, but that will have to wait until the future.

The 1891 census does not include current door numbering so the deduction of which entry refers to which current house is based on a number of factors.

Firstly the enumerator came out of Newport on to Queen Street ( one assumes he turned right down the odd number side).

Secondly the second house ( currently number 13 ) is occupied by a farmer, and we know that the orchard was a potato farm in the past.

Thirdly, the Temperance Hall is mentioned and if you ignore current numbers 11 and 9, the number of entries between the current number 13 and the Assembly Rooms fits the number of houses that would have been there in the 1990's

Fourthly, the entry after the Temperance Hall is the School House-the enumerator crossed the road.

Fifthly the next house to the school house is called the Cedars, and Ro. & Geoff Bryant have documents which refer to current numbers 6 and 8 as being the Cedars.

So these are my conclusions as to the occupants of the houses on Queen Street in 1891.

At this point I think the enumerator crossed Catherine Street, went up to the last Queen Street house on the right and came back towards Catherine Street which appears next after the Green Grocer. Queens Avenue did not exist in 1891. The current number 10 used to be a Green Grocer in recent living memory. There is a carrier bag advertising Osgerby's Fruiterers & Florists, Groceries and Provisions at 14 High Street and 10 Queen Street
