Welcome to the story of Trumpington's streets and the people who have
lived in the houses in these streets. The
Streets, Houses and People in
historic resource lists are derived from information in the
People in Trumpington database, both of which have been created by
Howard Slatter.

The resource lists are in the process of being developed and we hope that
each street in the older parts of Trumpington will eventually have its own
Alpha Terrace, c. 1908 (Cambridgeshire Collection) and January 2018.

The 'database' refers to the People in Trumpington database. Please read the notes about the
scope of that database.

The purpose of
Streets, Houses and People in Trumpington resource lists is to provide easy
navigation round the database for a street and specific addresses. The links take you to families
in the database, where more information will be found, including sources.

Occasionally these lists may appear to contradict the details in the database. This might be due to
an error, but usually it reflects some inconsistencies in the public data (parish registers, electoral
registers, census returns) which appear in their raw form in the database, but have been
normalised in these lists.

Family groups, including married couples (perhaps with a widowed parent), and other groups
such as sisters living together, are listed with the earliest and latest dates for any of them.

People who might still be alive are not usually listed.

Married or widowed women’s maiden names appear in parentheses, e.g. Mrs Mary (Brown)

Children are not usually listed separately; details of children will be found on the parents’ page in
the database.

Most homes are only covered up to the late 1960s.

Gaps in the lists of occupants do not necessarily indicate that no one was living in the house. It is
quite possible that either (a) records are not available for those years, or (b) people were there
but are not in the database as they have not been identified other than by name, or (c) they may
still be alive.

Electoral registers are a major source of information about who lived where after the last
published census of 1911. Many women did not appear on the registers until 1929, so the
presence of a married woman with her husband before then has frequently been assumed in
these lists. Similarly, people under 21 do not appear on the registers (until 1969 when that
became 18).

Women listed on their own have been designated either as Miss or Mrs, in order to aid

Modern addresses have been used to identify individual houses. Alternative, earlier, addresses
have been given where they have been identified.
