    Warrington’s population in 1801 was some 11,000. Between the 1840s and 1880s, the town’s population doubled to about 45,000 with the most rapid phase of growth occurring from the 1870s. By 1901 it had reached 65,000. The town’s good communications and expanding industries attracted migrants especially from Ireland. The migrant families crowded into the small terraced houses and courts typified by those shown around Buttermarket Street on the 1851 OS.
    The Cowens lived there from before 1873 until after 1878.
