Introduction

This space contains transcriptions of census returns for the household of William Stevens (1814-1885) 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 Stevens household through the various censuses up to, and including, the 1881 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.
