The following derived from the 1881 Census of England and Wales. It shows the names, age and place of birth for each person as shown in the census and any occupation listed. I give no guarantee as to the completeness or accuracy of the information below and anyone researching their own family tree is advised to use it only as a guide and to check the actual census. Apart from any transcription errors that may have occurred a further warning is necessary concerning the stated ages in the census. Experience has shown me that for the most part they are reasonably accurate within a year or so, but sometimes there are discrepancies.

In the lists anything enclosed in brackets is my own interpolation and is not necessarily correct.
