Introduction

This space contains transcriptions of census returns for the household of John Burden (1773-1860) and Eliza (Dennis) Burden (1805-1875) starting with the 1841 England Census. As such it forms a central repository for transcripts of data for all family members and anyone else associated with the Burden household at this time through the various censuses up to, and including, the 1871 England Census. A census is included so long as one head, or parent, is still alive and a return is found to transcribe. Also included are census returns for any other households where the head, or parent, may have been staying when the census was conducted. Further extrapolated tables for individual household members, children and relatives can also be found on their own Profile pages accessible by clicking on their names as they appear in any of the tables below. These provide source details for their biographical history, whilst the tables here add further context. Note names in the Household transcriptions have been corrected to their usual spelling.

1841 England Census

Data extrapolated from the Census Returns of England and Wales, 1841[1], recorded for the night of 6 June 1841. The 1841 Census was the first genealogically useful census for England and Wales, recording individuals' names, age and sex, as well as abode and, to a limited extent, place of birth.
