Shandon Valuation Roll 1920

Dear blog reader

Welcome to the eighth part in a series, a list of the people, with house names where known, who were connected with Shandon in 1920.

In 1920 Shandon had 76 households listed, a very slight increase on 1915. In 1915 Shandon had 75 households listed, a slight decrease on 1905. In 1905 Shandon had 82 households listed which was a vast increase on the anomaly of the valuation roll of 1895 when  only 16 households were listed but also an increase on the number of households in the 1885 Shandon valuation roll.   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.

  1. Hi, Was just wondering why William Williamson didn’t have an address next to his name. Interested as this is my grandfather and I am curious about when he came to Shandon and his time there. Thank you, Petrena

    1. Hi Petrena. Indeed the 1920 valuation roll simply has ‘house Shandon’ as your grandfather’s address. Perhaps it’s as simple as the house he was living in didn’t have a name or number in the street at that point? Do you have any family knowledge of what his address was at that point? Am glad you’ve found your grandfather in my blog and thanks for taking the time to comment. Jacqueline.
