Overview

A national sample of the Enumerators' Returns compiled by Professor Michael Anderson, transcribed and published on microfiche to provide the most fundamental data ever published on the structure of mid-nineteenth-century British society at all levels.

In 1851, the year of the first great national census, there were some four million households in Britain. Professor Anderson has taken a carefully balanced sample both of these households and institutions to produce detailed information on over 400,000 individuals including names, addresses, ages, relationships, and occupations.

An invaluable new resource for genealogists as well as social and local historians, the 1851 Census Enumerators' Returns contain crucial data for research into numerous aspects of nineteenth-century family life, employment, and institutions. The census data is readily accessible with entries for each household arranged by town, village, or locality and a topographical index included in the printed guide.
