History of Norton Mandeville >> Census of 1801
Names recorded in the census of 1801.
In 1801 the first census was carried out by the British Government. Local parish officials collected the required statistical information and submitted it to the government. Although the final information was purely statistical, some of the documents used to collect that information survived in parishes and some of these contain the names of residents. This is one example from Norton Mandevile. It lists the householder's name and the number of males and females in the household.
The orginal can be seen in the Norton Mandevill church register at the Essex Record Office reference D/P 261/1/1.
