Census (incomplete)

A full UK Census has been conducted every ten years since 1801 (excepting for 1941). The first four censuses (1801–1831) were mainly headcounts and contained little personal information. In 1841, each householder was required to complete a census schedule giving the address of the household, the names, ages, sex, occupations and places of birth of each individual residing in his or her accommodation. From 1851, householders were asked to give more precise details of the places of birth of each resident, to state their relationship to him or her, marital status and the nature of any disabilities from which they may have suffered. Census enumerators then collected the census schedules and these were copied into census enumerators' books. Although the original census schedules were destroyed many years ago, the enumerator's books were kept. Census information is subject to the 100-year confidentiality period so the latest information available relates to the Census taken on 2 April 1911.


The Hampton Wick census collection contains complete returns for 1841 to 1901, with currently about one third of the returns for 1911.
