Census adress question

Postby Mark1973 » Sun Nov 18, 2007 3:33 pm

On the census i've noticed in the road/street/name of house column that some of the ones i've been looking for end in what looks like 'Ter' am i right in asuming that means Terrace?

Yes, that is most probable. Have you a sample address or reference number and I can double check for you?

I have been tracingmy Scottish ancestors and sometimes their address on census returns are: James Yeaman address Gray St, Yeamans Ld. Not sure what Ld means, at first I got excited because I thought it said Yeamans Ltd and they had their own business but later discovered that most of them worked as weavers in the jute manufacturing industry!
