( see also Along the High Street )




A.   According to electoral registers, the houses in High Street were only numbered in 1950.  Before that year, other evidence must be used to determine which house is which, such as the order of the houses as it appears in various directories, registers and censuses, as well as comparing where particular families lived in different records at different times.  In some cases, what follows has to be a “best guess” that fits the evidence as well as possible.


B.   Nowadays we use the term “High Street” to mean the main road through Trumpington from Long Road south to where Hauxton Road and Shelford Road diverge.  It is that section of the former A10 which is covered here.  However, over time it has also been known variously as Cambridge Road, London Road, Trumpington Road and Main Road.


C.   We have attempted to trace properties back to the time of the census in 1851 (and in a few cases earlier still).  The majority of the buildings standing in 1851 were still in existence in 1950, and if so they are given their numbers from that year.  However, many have been lost over time.  In that case we have tried to give an indication of where, in relation to known houses, they probably stood.


D.   The oldest large-scale (25 inches to a mile) Ordnance Survey map of Trumpington shows the village as it was in 1885.  From that year onwards it is relatively easy to specify where each house stood.  However, before then (and this includes the censuses of 1881, 1871, 1861 and 1851) there has to be some speculation regarding their location.  Baker’s map of 1830 and the Inclosure Award map of 1804 both show buildings, but it can be difficult to match them with later representations.
