New Marston: 1861 census

The only part of New Marston that existed at the time of the 1861 census was the house at the end of King’s Mill Lane and a group of eight houses adjoining the brick kilns on the east side of the Marston Road and known as Tilehouse Cottages. These came under the parish of St Andrew’s Church in Headington. The farm called “Jack Straw’s Castle” is also listed in the New Marston section of the census.
