The following transcription is of my fuzzy photocopy of the 1851 census for Reiff, spelt Riff then. The columns on the 1851 census read; No. of Householder's Schedule Name of Street, Place, or Road, and Name or No. of House NAME and SURNAME, of each Person who abode in each house, on the Night of the 30th March, 1851 Relation to Head of Family Condition Age of Males Females Rank, Profession, or Occupation Where Born
The 27 households are numbered consecutively from 65 to 91, I have only transcribed data from the 8 pages with each family marked as living at "Riff", and have followed the enumerators naming pattern. I have ignored the page separations, as many households spilled over from one page to the next. I have identified the households by using a prefix of "51" to denote the 1851 census data, and a suffix based on the enumerators numbering.
Everyone is shown as born in RossShire.
