1841 census - Wing and surrounding hamlets

A "?xxxx" in the comments field indicates that the relevant piece of information was difficult to read (or was missing entirely thanks to decayed pages). Over on the right-hand side you will see the reference information. I have also added in a household number (H/H) so you could tell where one household ends and the next begins. The reason they begin with 'a' rather than '1' is that the very first page was missing from the CD I originally used to transcribe and number the households - but now George Rose has been reunited with his family!

A reminder that ages for those aged over 15 were supposed to be rounded down to the nearest multiple of 5 years in the 1841 census - so your ancestor may be slightly older than their age here indicates. However this particular instruction was not followed particularly well in Wing, and there are many adults recorded with their actual age. Relationships to the head of household are not given, nor are exact places of birth.

Try using the Find feature of your internet browser to locate a name quickly, or browse through them in the enumerated order. If you are just interested in one family and want a printed copy, I suggest you highlight the consecutive lines of your family and then Print Selection (either to Landscape in older browser versions or Shrink To Fit in newer versions). If you are interested in a particular surname scattered throughout the transcripts and would like a clean printout, please email me and I can create one from the source file and email it to you. If you can confirm some of the difficult-to-read details, please email me. If you think there is an error in the transcription or would like me to check again against the scans, please email me - I have done my best but the odd error may be in there somewhere.

TO THE TRANSCRIPTION - good luck and please be patient while it loads.
