< More census and related records

Note: The eleventh census of the United States, for 1890, was destroyed in a fire, and the 1895 Rhode Island Island census is missing, so there is no census data available for the United States covering the 1890s.

Census of England and Wales, 1891

Devon | Lancashire | London | Middlesex | Shropshire | Staffordshire | Surrey | Sussex | Warwickshire | Wiltshire | Yorkshire

The information recorded for each person in this census included where they lived, their name, marital status, age, sex, occupation or means of support, whether they were employed or an employer, and the place where they were born. The head of the family was identified (where applicable), and the relationship to that person of everyone else in the household was indicated.

In the partial transcripts below: details of people other than members of the Atcherley family may be abridged; names and ages are given as written; marital status is not usually given for husbands and wives in the same household, for unmarried children living with their parents, or for persons aged under 20 who are not married; occupations may be amended for spelling and consistency; spellings of place names are corrected where possible; counties of birth are omitted if the person was living in the county of their birth at the time of the census; and words, letters or numbers (i.e. ages) which could not be transcribed are replaced with underscores: ___.
