A Short History of Parish Records
As we have seen, both Civil Registration and Census Returns run out when you get back to c.1840, and rarely provide information relevant before 1800. At this stage you need to turn to Parish Records.

 

Possible Pitfalls in Using the Census
Many people don't realise that the census page images we see are actually transcripts of the household census forms, the details were copied into the books by the enumerators.

 

Knebworth House, the 'stately home of rock' in the 1851 Census
The 1851 Census includes the records for Knebworth House, the 'stately home of rock', which has welcomed acts such as Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and Queen.

 

The Census - What information can I find in each year?
A census was taken every 10 years from 1810, but were only useful to genealogists as of 1841.
