[End of Census Document]


  • All shorthand contractions in the document have been reproduced as written.
  • Where the age is given in "Months" this has been contracted to "Mon" in the transcription.
  • The abbreviations are "Chart" = "Charlotte", "Daur" = "Daughter", "Do" = "Ditto", "F. S." = "Female Servant" and "M. S." = "Male Servant".
  • The text enclosed in "[]" was on the original but had been crossed out but has been included here for completeness. In the entry for "John Myhill aged 13 years" the crossed out words "Son of the above" refer probably to "Ben Myhill aged 35 years"?
  • In other documents and transcriptions the following alternative spellings have been seen which appear to refer to the same people/places:-
    Beevor/Bewor, Drawry/Drewry, Perlindor Lake/Belinda Lake, Julleeam Lake/Julia Ann Lake.
  • On Page 1 under Mary LAKE the "2" in the "Uninhabited or Building Houses" column should really appear on the next line with no name against it. They are totalled in the summary as "Building".
  • The following are noted from Hargham Parish Registers:-
    • John BROTHERS marr. Charlotte MALLOWS on 18/Mar/1822.
    • William LAKE (widower) marr. Mary NICHOLS (spinster) on 27/Nov/1820.
    • William MALLOWS marr. Maria WARREN on 22/Jan/1834.
    • William SAUNDERS marr. Rebecca BOWLES on 3/May/1815.
    The above marriages are purely pointers and further searching should be done as the males may have married again females with the same first names before the Census was taken.
  • The following is noted from Ludham Parish Register and Kirby Cane Register and Norfolk Archdeaconry AT's (Archdeacon's Transcripts):-
    • Franklyn Lancaster BEEVOR was Baptised 19/Apr/1761 at Ludham the son of son of John Batt and Martha BEEVOR (nee LULMAN) (who had married by licence at Kirby Cane on 7/Nov/1748).
