Part Two
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".

Parish Boundary Change - Until 1999, the north side of Cambridge Road was known as New Wimpole and was within the Parish of Wimpole. The south side of Cambridge Road was in the Parish of Orwell (and sometimes referred to as 'New Orwell'). You can access the 1901 census information about the 'New Orwell' properties now located in Wimpole here.

Continued from Part One

[After journeying around the Wimpole Estate, the census has now reached the village of New Wimpole. With the possible exception of Schedule 29 below, the sequence appears to follow the northern side of Cambridge Road (the A603) from east to west. In 1901, the properties on the southern side of Cambridge Road were in the Parish of Orwell (census details here).]

Cambridge Road  (Schedule 29)
[I can't identify this dwelling for certain - either (a) this is half of the Old Wooden School building, which was listed as two very small dwellings both in the 1891 census and the 1933 Estate sale documents, or (b) this house and family were simply listed out of sequence as, in 1891, the Carter family were living at the other end of New Wimpole village (at 1891 Schedule 13).]

William [Edmund] CARTER (1)(5) Head M 47 General Labourer Croydon, Cambridgeshire
Elizabeth CARTER (2) Wife M 44 - Wimpole, Cambridgeshire
Nellie CARTER Daughter S 13 Scholar Wimpole, Cambridgeshire
Daisy CARTER Daughter S 9 Scholar Wimpole, Cambridgeshire
Beaty CARTER Daughter S 7 Scholar Wimpole, Cambridgeshire
Dorothy CARTER Daughter S 4 Scholar Wimpole, Cambridgeshire

[Notes:
(1) William Edmund Carter died 1940 aged 84 and was buried with Elizabeth in Wimpole Churchyard.
(2) Elizabeth Carter died 1911, aged 54, and was buried in Wimpole Churchyard.
(3) William and Elizabeth were parents to Sidney, Lily, Alice, Annie, Nellie, Daisy, Beaty and Dorothy.
(4) There's another William and Elizabeth Carter living at Schedule 44 below. Probably William's father but I will check the family when I get down there.
(5) W Carter has been identified in a photograph.]


If the Census Enumerators 'did' schools, which of course they don't, then this is roughly where Wimpole Church of England School would appear in the census. The images below are both c1900, which means (depending on the exact year) most of the pupils seen here will be listed in the 1901 Census at more or less the 'age' they are in the photographs. Boys on the left, girls on the right. Click/tap on the photographs for larger images and some suggested pupil names.
Wimpole School c1900 Boys Wimpole School c1900 Girls

The Old 'Wooden School' c1955
[The 'Wooden School'
This was the original school building in Wimpole, constructed from timber and brick with slated roof. After the new 'brick' C of E School was built nearby in 1874, the old school building was converted into one then two small dwellings. Each dwelling comprised a sitting room, a bedroom, a pantry, plus garden and an outside toilet. Residents had the legal right to "take water from the Pump and Well in the garden of the School-house". The building was said to be an Almshouse in 1933. The above image is the only 'photograph' of the school I have been able to find and is taken from a stencilled WI local history pamphlet published in 1958 (although the 'Wooden School' can also be glimpsed in the background of the two c1900 pupil photographs linked above). The original Village Hall (1924-1977) is also in the above image, alongside the school on the right.]

The initial table uses fixed information from the Prospectus for the 1933 Estate Sale and from the 1911 and 1901 National Censuses. Yellow highlighting indicates a confirmed residence (a census says 'who' but not always 'where'). I have used modern-day house numbering here to avoid confusion. An asterisk indicates the cottage at the rear.
Although the 1933 Sale and 1911, 1901 and 1891 Censusus above work through exactly as expected across the 17 dwellings above, it appears that the three 'triples' were originally numbered as six individual cottages and presumably built to house six families (three upstairs and three downstairs). The conversion into three larger paired dwellings (I assume the ground plus the first floor above) was probably carried out in the 1880s. Cottages numbering for the 1871, 1881 and 1891 censuses appears to confirm this.
So for 1871 and 1891, I have tried to use the cottage numbering system used - No 1 Cottage to No 24 Cottage right to left. I believe this is the original numbering 'as built'. Note the more recent 'double' cottage on the far left is listed in both censuses as "unnumbered". Although the 1891 residents fall into place neatly enough, I think the numbering sequence confused the census enumerator in both 1891 and 1871 years and the cottage numbers were not necessarily listed correctly against the families in residence.

Cambridge Road  (Schedule 32)

(2) Despite some quite extensive searching, it took several years to establish where Mary Ann died or where she is buried. Thanks to John and Carolyn Parkins we now know she died of capillary bronchitis on the 18 March 1932 at 28 Castle Street, Farnham in Surrey where she was living with her son David. Her death certificate confirms 'widow of David Pratt, gardener domestic'.
