Local Census Listings, 1522-1930: Holdings in the British Isles. 3rd edition. Jeremy Gibson & Mervyn Medlycott


There are an unexpected quantity of 'quasi-censuses' pre-dating the decennial national census, whose records survive in unexpected quantity. They include locally retained census enumeration lists made for 1801 831 which included names of individuals, and many others in earlier centuries. For the first time these are comprehensively listed for the whole of England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.
