The 1841 census was taken on the night of Sunday 6th June 1841 and is the first census that is of real value to all family historians as it was the first to ask detailed questions about individuals.

The following information was recorded in the schedules about each dwelling and person residing there on the night of the census:

  • the address - house numbers were rarely given, and in rural areas often only the name of the village or hamlet
  • whether the dwelling was "uninhabited or building" or "inhabited"
  • name of each person residing at the dwelling on the night of the census
  • age and sex - the age should have been rounded down to the nearest five years for those aged 15 or over but in some cases the actual age was recorded. The sex was indicated by the column that the age was recorded in
  • profession, trade, employment or of independent means
  • if they were born in the county in which they were enumerated (Y or N)
  • if they were born in Scotland (S), Ireland (I) or Foreign Parts (F)
