Note that the listings shown above against the 1933 Auction, fix the tenant name precisely to each of the three [then] cottages and their related gardens. Although the 1881 census gives detailed family information, it does not identify which of the three properties the families lived in. I am looking for a 'name' link between 1911 and 1933 to fix the above names against each property, at least down to 1891.

A police station was built in Arrington c1866 opposite 'The Hardwicke Arms' and petty sessions (minor court cases) were held there until 1958, when the police station was closed. The courts were transferred to Melbourn.
By 1968 the former police station had been converted into two private houses.

Looking northwards towards Arrington Hill. (See Schedule 21 and 22)
[Enlarged detail from an early postcard in my collection]

A Grade II listed building, 'The Hardwicke Arms' is said to have its origins in the 13th century. 'The Tiger' inn in this location was recorded in 1747. The inn was renamed 'The Hardwicke Arms' and at least partially rebuilt during the late 18th century. During the 18th and mid-19th centuries it was a major coaching inn located (as it was then) on the Great North Road, the main road between London and York (Ermine Street).
'The Hardwicke Arms' is a two-storey range of the 18th century built in brick and tile, and in the time of the 1881 and 1891 censuses was also the house of a farm of up to 196 acres. The farm buildings at the rear were recorded and offered for sale in 1933 but most have since been demolished.
'The Hardwicke Arms' is still in business as a pub and hotel.
