This source is the entry for 20 Market Place from the Census of 1901. Read it carefully and then answer the questions below. Reading the handwriting from the 19th and early 20th centuries can be quite tricky. If you get stuck look at the enlarged version of the image or use the transcript.
1. Who is listed as the head of the household?
2. Look at the next name on the list. Who is it? What is their relationship to the head of the household? What does this tell you about the people who lived there?
3. Who else lives there? Are they all related? (Clue - look at the occupations of the last two people listed, Florence and Elizabeth.)
4. What do you think is meant by 'living on their own means'? Do you think this means Mary Summers was rich or poor?
5. What else can this census entry tell us about what the Market Place was like in the past?
You won't find him on this census entry, but we know from the 1891 Census that Mary and Fanny's father was Thomas Summers. Thomas Summers lived his whole life at 20 Market Place. He died in 1898 and was buried at St Nicholas'. You can find out more about that Church or look at another house on the Census.
