The 1881 Census for Orwell, Cambridgeshire.
Reference: Ref. RG11/1656 (with acknowledgement to the Public Record Office)
Date of Census: 3 April 1881
There is a national Census every ten years when the year ends in a one. This page details the population of the Parish of Orwell on the night of 3 April 1881 (the list includes children and visitors from outside the parish in temporary residence within Orwell on the night of the census).
My thanks and acknowledgements to the 'census team' who provided the documentation and who typed and checked the various page transcripts back in 2002/2003. Particular thanks to Mike Giddings, Susan Giddings, Alexandra Morton and John Parkins for all their help, assistance and encouragement. Any errors are probably mine.
Columns (left to right):
   1. Name.
   2. Relation to Head of Household.
   3. Married, Widow, Widowed or Unmarried (18 years and over).
   4. Age.
   5. Occupation.
   6. Place of Birth.
The house numbers shown below were those used in 1881 and therefore unlikely to relate directly to present day postal addresses.
[Information, notes and comments additional to the 1881 Census are generally shown italicised within square brackets]
I would be pleased to hear from you if you can offer any additional genealogical or family information relevant to this page, especially if you possess old photographs that could be added to this site for those who follow. Please use the site's Contact Page in the first instance.
