This page lists those recorded on the census at Worcester Wharf, Birmingham in 1841 as Boatmen, whether born in the county or otherwise, and for 1851-1891 those born in Warwickshire, or for whom birthplaces is unknown. The 1841 and 1851 census does not list Boats by name, so we have included all those for whom an occupation was given as 'Boatman'.
