COMPLETE CENSUS OF 1871 FOR SQUARE IN WALSDEN
The enumerator has lumped the cottages on Square with those on Rochdale Road (they were Birks Terrace at the time). The numbers in the left hand column are the original house numbers, reflecting the fact there were homes at the backs of some of the existing houses. These numbers were changed during the 1890's to the current numbers, and that must be when the back houses were done away with.
The column on the far right is a "best guess" as to the current number of the house
