Introduction

This space contains transcriptions of census returns for the household of Edwin George Gibbs (1857-1943) starting with the 1881 England Census. As such it forms a central repository for transcripts of data for all family members and anyone else associated with the Gibbs household through the various censuses up to, and including, the 1939 England and Wales Register taken at the outbreak of World War 2, if applicable. 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.

1891 England Census

Data extrapolated from the Census Returns of England and Wales, 1891[2], recorded for the night of 5 April 1891. The 1891 Census further expanded the information collected about individuals and households, workers' employment status was recorded - whether they were Employers, Employed or Neither. The census also started to collect data about the size of dwellings, specifically how many rooms were occupied, a reflection of concerns about overcrowding.

1901 England Census

Data extrapolated from the Census Returns of England and Wales, 1901[3], recorded for the night of 31 March 1901. As with the previous census the 1901 Census requested still more information from individuals and households; those working were now asked to state if they were working at home. However, women's roles in the domestic setting still were not, for the most part, treated as work.

1911 England Census

Data extrapolated from the Census Returns of England and Wales, 1911[4], recorded for the night of 2 April 1911. The 1911 Census heralded the biggest changes to the census record since 1851 with the introduction of a separate schedule for each household. Also, for the first time, it documented how many years couples had been married, the number of children they had in total as well as how many of them were living or dead. A worker's industry or service sector was now recorded whilst all individuals had to state their nationality. And the number of rooms for each dwelling was recorded.

1939 England and Wales Register

Data extrapolated from the 1939 Register[5], taken on 29 September, 1939. The 1939 Register is an important record initiated at the onset of the Second World War. Not only does it bridge the gap between the 1921 and 1951 census records for England and Wales but it also provides rich detail for both individuals and households. Over time many amendments recording extra information were added and it served, from 1948, as the National Health Service register.
