Jack Campin BS: Who first lived in your house/pad ? (29) RE: BS: Who first lived in your house/pad ? 04 Jun 21


The last place I lived was an Edinburgh tenement sold as separate flats in 1844. We have a copy of the title deed. The first owner was described as a "minibus driver", which is a good few years earlier than the first use of the word "minibus" the OED knows about.

(Though I know of another use of the word from Edinburgh in 1838, so our title deed doesn't make linguistic history).
