Granny's birth certificate in the 1890s only names the village.

Interestingly, someone has posted the digital image of a birth in a Norfolk village in the 1860s, and the heading there only says when born, though in this case the hamlet is named.
Even in the 1980's there were some rural people whose address was just their name and the village where they lived, plus of course the postcode.
