In the 1881 Census Henry was shown as a market gardener. But there is actually an interesting seven-page return showing all the residents of Weston Parish, (part of Weston) and Langridge Parish, showing a total of 31 residences and 119 people living in them.
These include four farms and an Inn, each employs servants (several are children of the other locals, including Francis Stiles). Five of the households are headed by a market gardener (including Henry Stiles), Three by gardeners and One by a nurseryman – presumab;ly engaged by the farmers?
Others in this community include a bailiff, a knackerman (he slaughtered horses and hogs), a shepherd, a carter, a bootmaker and an agricultrual salesman. Almost all are from the local area, one wife from Devon. Many of the wives and older daughters are shown as laundresses, one was a dressmaker.
