Norfolk: Great Yarmouth


Census: 1803

Great Yarmouth is one of the few places in the county for which a census before 1841 containing names survives.

This 1803 Norfolk Record Office document [with the reference MF/RO 103/3] covers a number of pages, the start of each being indicated by [Page xx] in the text.

The following is actually described as a Military List but is much more than that. To find all those males between the ages of 15 and 60 a list was drawn up which in addition to them also included some males above 60 and a number of singlewomen and widows. The ages, marital status and other information was also recorded in most cases.
