Census returns - Old Post Office

Old Post Office

1841It has not been possible yet to relate any entry in this census to the building which later became the shop/post office but the 1853 Ordnance Survey Map does appear to show the building at the junction of Hollins Lane and High Street.
1851Adam HARKNESS (39) Draper and Wesleyan Preacher
Charlotte HARKNESS (37) wife
Jane DARNBOROUGH visitor (30) Dressmaker
1861Adam HARKNESS Head (48) Grocer & Draper and Wesleyan Local Preacher

William WILSON Head (m) (56) Grocer & Postmaster
Sarah WILSON wife (m) (53)
Clara M. STOCKDALE niece (s) (25) Grocer's Assistant
1901
Post office
William WILSON Head (m) (66) Grocer & Postmaster
Sarah WILSON wife (m) (63)
Clara M. STOCKDALE niece (s) (35) Assistant postmaster

N.B.
It has been assumed that entries for 1851/1871 relate to the same shop premises as were first described in 1881 as "Post Office" (presumably following the appointment of Mr Wilson to his new status) . . . . .

Clara Stockdale seems to have married a Mr Moon after 1901 (see the name-board in the early photographs).
