Census information 1851 to 1881

Archive Notes:

Paper compiled by Michael Heaton on Census information 1851 to 1881.

There were 468 recorded trades in 1871 of which some 9% were recorded as paupers or unemployed. In 1881, the number of recorded trades was 428, but now only 5.5% were recorded as unemployed.

The range of trades suggests a self-contained village. Paupers and unemployed in 1871 were 9% of the total ‘trades’ recorded, 5.5% in 1881. The reduction, due to emigration after 1871 had made the village more contented according to Wilfrid Sheldon.

Includes farming census information, although not very helpful.
