Norfolk: Wells-next-the-Sea

Census: 1793

Wells-next-the-Sea is one of the few places in the county for which a census before 1841 containing names survives.

This 1793 Norfolk Record Office document [with the reference FX 215/1] is a facsimilie of the original as written in the church records. I have split my transcription up into pages where each represents an individual street or area as indicated in the text.
