1851 Census


The Full 1851 Census is now available from various sources.

This is the 1851 extract - Only 2% and only for certain Parishes, but you could be lucky

The 2 per cent extract of the 1851 census was done by taking every 50th enumeration book, and transcribing that entire book; NOT every 50th page. As a result, you get full data for all those persons in those books which were taken (Not randomly selected - just every 50th book in the sequence throughout the UK was transcribed). The result is that you might find all the household of interest to you, but the odds are 50 to 1 against! However, not all is lost. There are many genealogy sites that have much more detailed records, and with their all inclusive deals, they won't be overly expensive.
