Census records


In the UK, a full census has taken place every ten years since 1801, with the exceptions of 1941. For 1801-1831, the detailed records of each household were collected locally and, except in very rare cases, were subsequently destroyed. From 1841 onwards, though, the household schedules were archived and are retained by The National Archives. Those less than 100 years old are not available for public access, but the the others are now in the public domain.

I have collected most of the Gumbletons from the available censuses. When I began this task, the records were only available on microfilm at the Public Record Office, in Portugal Street, London, and there were no indexes of names, so I spent many hours winding through films looking for Gumbletons. Nowadays, the records are available online and I am gradually rechecking my early work against the current indexes.
