TODMORDEN AND WALSDEN, LANGFIELD

AND PART OF STANSFIELD

This details name, address, age, occupation and place of birth.

 

In addition to the areas covered on this website, Keith Stansfield has transcribed both the 1841 and 1851 census returns for the WHOLE of Stansfield (his 1851 transcription includes the lower third not covered on this website). For approximately 36% of individuals he has linked their whereabouts in both census. He is willing to search his own data base and can be contacted by email at: solek@talktalk.net

 

In the 1841 census, the age of people under 15 is as stated by the head of household. The ages of people over 15 are recorded as the lowest in a range of 5 years, for example, 15 means over 15 but under 20. For those who, like us, are easily confused by this, Ernest Law has produced a table to help with the mathematics!
