The enumerator's descriptions gives no indication which farm belonged to Thomas. However, the Enumerator's Lowthorpe trail leads from Tithe Farm, Wansford, past Cattleholme and Railway Cottages to Crompton and The Lodge. This suggests the Crompton's farmed Well Close Farm. Sleights was only accessible from Nafferton.
