Gloucester Archives has a collection of Rate Books for Thornbury covering the period from 1859 to 1926.  Many of these books show the main occupant of each house and the owner.  We have found this a really useful way of identifying who lived in each house.  It has also helped us sort out problems caused by being unsure of the precise route used by the census enumerators.  We have tended only to transcribe information about the properties that were in the Town of Thornbury rather than the District of Thornbury which includes outlying villages.  Please click on the appropriate line to read more.
