1871 census - Wing and surrounding hamlets

Happily the 1871 census is much more readable than earlier years! There are a few entries where the occupation or birthplace was difficult to read, and I have included "xxxx" as part of that field to indicate this problem.

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.
