Is it Wonderstone or Understone at Bleadon?
published by Pat Hase on Fri, 08/07/2022 - 23:17

Looking at the censuses for Bleadon I notice that the address for some people can be Wonderstone or Understone, depending on the census. I assume that this is the Wonderstone that we know today.  Does anyone know whether it was ever known as Understone or is this a case of the enumerator writing down what they thought they heard?

The 6 inch OS map from 1884 shows Wonderstone - no sign of a place called Understone.

The maps available at https://maps.nls.uk/ (National Library of Scotland) are great for identifying places.

Cheers Rob
