Census strays are those entries where the
county of birth is different to that in which
the subject has been recorded on census day.
Records where the county of birth is not known [
"Not Known", "Unknown" etc] have also been
included, and counties are 'as recorded', which
means that sometimes they may not be as they are
today, or simply that mistakes have occured.
Each year is split into several sections (the
same for each year), to make viewing a little
easier with the large numbers [over 13,000
entries over the 8 census years]. 1841 entries
only quote whether or not the individual was
born in the county, 1851 and onwards quotes a
place (where given).
These pages can be used as a finding aid if you
wish to go and view the census yourself, or
please ask for a full household transcript for
any entry you see here.
