Entries from the 1881 Census Returns

Below are entries that I have extracted from the 1881 census returns in the course of my research into the Solman family. I have not necessarily extracted all relevant entries, so this should not be viewed as a complete listing. Also, as is almost inevitable in the process of transcription, the information below may contain some errors, so it is always advisable to check the original entries. Entries are listed in numerical order by piece and folio number.

This page also includes some entries from the 1881 Canadian census and the 1880 US Federal census.
