This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about one surname and the variants of that name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect.

Oldhamstead appears to be a name with very limited distribution in the Essex, England area. Most of them are in my current tree as descendants of William Oldhamstead & Mary Sailing. I would like to document all of them and perhaps discover the origin of the name.

Task List

1. Transfer known cousins to Wikitree (53 names)
2. Search each UK census for "Oldhamstead" (exact spelling on) - https://www.ancestry.com.au/search/collections/1911england/

I have compiled a list of all people listed on England census records with a surname spelled "Oldhamstead" using an exact surname search at Ancestry.com. Numbers are as follows:

  • 1841 - 3
  • 1851 - 8
  • 1861 - 8
  • 1871 - 11
  • 1881 - 11
