Anatomy of the Census Page
Not every piece of information is obvious to the casual observer, so to make sure that you extract every useful piece of information from the census page.

 

Fleet Registers
Before 1754 many marriages were not performed in parish churces due to the need for people to get around the need for banns and other petty regulations. The favourite alternative venue was the Fleet Prison.

 

Celebrities of the Army
We usually think of 'celebrity' as a modern invention, but who were the figures of public interest in the 19th Century - the celebrities?

 

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.
