The Census Document

The original document had the following headings.

  • No of Houses
  • Christian name and surname
  • Families
  • Males
  • Females
  • Occupations

Notes

  • All the names were "Christian name" followed by "Surname". I believe "Eaton John" has possibly been transposed so have included both the names for completeness in the index.
    .........
    John Last
    Eaton John
    Andrew Turner
    .........
  • In addition to the individual entries summary of houses, families employed in agriculture etc. is given for 1801 and 1811.
