The following pages will detail the CENSUS RECORDS for the families listed on this site. The information is very informative. It lists names, ages, birthplaces, occupation, spouses, parents and children. Through these census records we can get an insight into our families and their relationships. If we compare the census records with known history details for corresponding years it helps in your understanding of why families were separated. Some members found themselves living and working in the Union Workhouses, in Gaol, being raised by Aunts or Grandparents. At times listed in the column at the side of the entry of a name will be any birth or other injuries known. Examples found include such notes as deaf & dumb, blind from birth or crippled for six months and one leg amputated etc. Union Workhouses sometimes listed the infirmed as Idiots or Lunatics. All descriptions hard to except as being standard descriptions in our age of political correctness. You find children aged as young as nine years with occupations that required them to work long and arduous hours. Commonly these children disappear from the census records. Some have died very young whilst others have left the country. Infant mortality was also very common and death through childbirth, epidemics also claimed many family members.
