1891 census - Wing and surrounding hamlets

Where anything was difficult to read, I've added a question mark as part of that field to indicate this. I've also standardised the recording and spelling of "agricultural labourer" as our enumerators weren't very consistent!

Employment status abbreviations are as follows: Employe(R), Employe(D), or (N)either. Relationship status abbreviations should be fairly self-explanatory but check the comments field for non-standard ones.

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 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.
