Part One
The 1901 Census
Parish of Wimpole
Part One (Shedules 1 to 28)      Part Two (Schedules 29 to 62)
Part Three ("New Orwell")
Date of Census: 31 March 1901


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.
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 night of the census). The 1841 Census had a note recording "several large families have left the parish and others have emigrated since 1831".

Brick End
(Thornberry Hill Cottages)


Brick End, February 1977
Brick End, February 1977.
This row of worker's cottages in the area of the estate known as Brick End was originally built as two double cottages in the 18th century. The middle 'infill' cottage was a 19th century addition. They were photographed here in 1977 when all five cottages were unoccupied. Following extensive restoration and improvement, they are now in private ownership and named "Thornberry Hill Cottages".
Schedules 13 to 17 follow below.

Original Census Listing:

Isaac HEWITT (1) Head M 69 General Labourer Wimpole, Cambridgeshire
Ashwell HEWITT (1) Wife M 46 - Swaffham Bulbeck, Cambs
Isaac HEWITT (1) Son S 44 Marble Mason (own a/c) Wimpole, Cambridgeshire
Thomas HEWITT (1) Son S 4 - Wimpole, Cambridgeshire
           
Corrected Listing:          
           
Isaac HEWITT (1) Head W 69 General Labourer Wimpole, Cambridgeshire
Isaac HEWITT (1) Son M 44 Marble Mason (own a/c) Wimpole, Cambridgeshire
Ashwell HEWITT (1) Dau-in- Law M 46 - Swaffham Bulbeck, Cambs
Thomas HEWITT (1) Grandson S 4 - Wimpole, Cambridgeshire

[Notes:
(1) It appears the census has confused the generations. I think 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 (died 1925 aged 93) was married to Charlotte Hewitt (who had died in 1891), and they 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.... I've added a corrected listing to help if not.

(2) The year before her marriage to John Rumbold, 18-year-old servant girl Charlotte Pratt gave birth to a son, James Pratt, who was baptised on the 2 April 1848. The father was understood to have been her employer, the 4th Earl of Hardwicke. It is said the Earl arranged the marriage with John Rumbold in return for him receiving a cottage on the estate and financial support for the child.
(3) "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". - "Wimpole As I Knew It" by Rev A.C.Yorke writing in 1914.
(4) John (died 1888) and Charlotte Rumbold (d 1921) are buried together in Wimpole Churchyard.]
