Shandon Valuation Roll 1895

Dear blog reader

Welcome to the fifth part in a series, a list of the people, with house names where known, who were connected with Shandon in 1895.

In 1895 Shandon only had 16 households listed, a massive reduction compared to 1885. I suspect, unlike all other valuation rolls so far, only a few of the Shandon properties were counted as Shandon in 1895 for an unknown reason. In 1885 Shandon had 74 households, a huge increase from 1875 when Shandon had 32 households. The 1875 number was the exact same number as the 32 households in 1865 which had been a growth of 4 households from the 28 households in 1855.

Hopefully those of you with ancestors from Shandon will find this list useful.
