Please accept that what follows is the train wreck of an old web-page started around 2003, although the content is presumably still valid. Over time the page will be rebuilt into the new 'Wimpole Past' format, but it is included here to allow visitors access to 1901 census content and information. I've already tidied up the introduction, the first couple of entries and some of the internal site links.

The 1901 Census for Wimpole, Cambridgeshire.
Reference: Ref. RG13/1521 (with acknowledgement to the Public Record Office)


Introduction

This is the 1901 Census for the Parish of Wimpole in Cambridgeshire. There were 240 men, women and children living in the Parish of Wimpole on the 31 March 1901. Of those 121 are male and 119 are female. Only 114 (48%) were born in the parish and 24 (10%) gave their county of birth as Cornwall. The sudden appearance of the Cornish tenant farmers and their families since the previous census is quite marked and I assume this is because of the Robartes family, owners of Wimpole Hall, and their links with the family estate in Lanhydrock.

Unlike the 1881 and 1891 census, the 1901 starts with the high moral ground (the Rectory), sidesteps to the landed gentry at Wimpole Hall (not that the landed gentry are at home) then works its way through the outlying farms and lodges down to the village of New Wimpole and hamlet of Arrington Bridge.

The Population of Wimpole

There is a national Census every ten years when the year ends in a one. The following table gives the population of the Parish of Wimpole from 1801 to 1951 (the numbers include children and visitors from outside the parish in temporary residence within Wimpole on the date of census).

[Notes:
(a) It appears the census has confused the generations. I'm going to suggest (pending check) that Ashwell is the wife of Isaac the younger and thus daughter-in-law to Isaac the elder. Also that Thomas is son to Isaac the younger and Ashwell and thus grandson to Isaac the elder. Isaac Hewitt the elder (d 1925) was married to Charlotte Hewitt (d 1891), and both are buried together in Wimpole Churchyard. Therefore, Isaac the elder should be shown as a widower and Isaac the younger should be shown as married. Hope that's all clear....

"Charlotte... was a Pratt; and she was a picture. The handsomest woman that I ever remember to have seen. In harvest time to see her swinging along the road with a bundle of corn balanced on her head, both arms akimbo, was a study in colour, figure and poise". - Rev A.C.Yorke writing in 1914.

This was the original school building in Wimpole. After the new 'brick' C of E School was built in 1874, the building was converted into one then two small dwellings. It was listed as an Almshouse in 1933 (this image is the only photograph of the school I have been able to find and is taken from an ink 'duplicated' WI pamphlet issued in 1958). The original Wimpole Village Hall (1924-1977) can be glimpsed on the right.

If the Census Enumerators did schools, which of course they don't, then this is where Wimpole Church of England School would appear in the census. The images are both c1900, which means (depending on the exact year) most of the pupils will be listed in the 1901 Census proper at more or less the 'age' they are in the photographs.
