The 1891 Census for Orwell, Cambridgeshire.
Reference: RG12/1277 (with acknowledgement to the Public Record Office)
Date of Census: 5 April 1891
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 5 April 1891 (the list include children and visitors from outside the parish in temporary residence within Orwell on the date of the census).
My thanks and acknowledgements to the 'census team' who provided the documentation and who typed and checked the various page transcripts. Particular thanks to Mike Giddings, Susan Giddings, Alexandra Morton and John Parkins for all their help, assistance and encouragement.
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 or references shown below were those used in 1891 and therefore unlikely to relate to present day postal addresses.
[Information, notes and comments additional to the 1891 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.
