Nightingales Cottages


Before North Cottages were built in the 1890s, there were several properties referred to as “Nightingales Cottages” on the same site, and that beside The Volunteer.  A row of seven or eight of these was where numbers 1 to 4 North Cottages stand today. There were four more north of there, south of Rose Cottage (those all survived until 1936, and two are still there today).  What follows is an attempt at identifying who lived where; the census returns are very unclear, and we have made no attempt to say who lived exactly where within the earlier row of seven or eight cottages.  Before 1871 it is even less clear who lived where within this site.
