I have found a relative on the 1871 Census living with his family on Hasker Street, parish of St. Luke, London.
There are a lot of Families listed from all part's England there, Was this an institute of some kind ??

Maybe you could give details so people can have a look at that census?

William W. Copland, 1843, Norfolk.
Other name in household, Charley Copland.

The house number has been cut off the image so not an institution

Have you looked at the previous or next image ?


brummiejan Report 12 Jan 2013 22:54

They are separate households I think.


Norfolkboy Report 12 Jan 2013 22:55

I see what you mean GlitterBaby,
I was going by the "View Household Record" where they have listed everybody in the street !!

The enumerator hasn't numbered the street, maybe it wasn't at that time.

Each house is ended by a double slash mark under the last named person in the house. For example under Louisa M Copland.

Where the house has more than one 'family' then there is a single slash which seperates the different families. For example the Thorn household ends with Alice Thorn so there is a single slash and then in the same house are the Baugh household. After the Baughs is a double slash.

The column headed 'inhabited' has a mark against each house and at the bottom the total number of houses shows 2.

So not an institution, just an ordinary street.

Hope that makes sense

By doing an address search -
Lots of houses in Hasker Street
First 2 schedule numbers are 0 then various others from 450 to 609 (not all of those inbetween)
If you look at either of the 0 schedules then it looks to list every household in Hasker Street, but if you look at a "numbered" schedule then you get an individual household.
As far as I can tell the numbers of the individual houses are not visible on the census sheet so have been transcribed as one abode after number 8 (schedule 476)
Then someone else has come along and split the households according to the enumerators marks

Does that make any sense?

There would appear to be William, wife Ruth, son Charley, daughters Laura and Louisa as one household when you view the original
