Shipston on Stour RD was assigned to Warwickshire, even though it extended into Gloscestershire. Shipston on Stour itself was in Worcestershire!!

Thank you Reggie

Once again its because I was looking under Glos. As a matter of interest C R Ashbee was an important person in the Arts & Crafts movement

Try searching using just CAMPDEN

Neither of the addresses includes the word CHIPPING

Thank you very much. Please don't tell me how easy it was!!

I do note, however, Chipping Campden is shown as being in Warwickshire instead of Gloucestershire which is where its always been.

Its probably me but i cannot find any record in the 1911 census for Chipping Campden in Gloucestershire. I have tried names (George Hart gold/silversmith and C Ashbee gold/silversmith) and streets (Sheep St and High St) . I have tried for anyone (ie blank name) living in Chipping Campden in 1911. Not a dicky bird. Nowt.

is it me? Or did the place disappear for the night of the census. Any help would be appreciated.

Gerry :-)
