Missing 1881 census
« on: Wednesday 08 September 04 14:50 BST (UK) »
Hi All,

Are you having a fruitless search on the 1881 census?

I found this site...


Which says that the following census are nmissing from the films (which is what LDS trans were done from).

http://www.ktb.net/~dwills/scotref/18811959.htm

PARISH NUMBER/ COUNTY/ PARISH NAME
124/ Moray/ Abernethy
399/ Fife/ Abbotshall
758/ Peebles/ Broughton
822/ Dumfries/ Dunscore

I knew a significant proportion of the Dumfries census was missing - see post from Audrey in Dumfriesshire...

Cheers,
Pam

Not entirely true...

Abernethy, Moray can be found in Abernethy & Kincardine, Inverness-shire (90a)
Abbotshall, Fife can be found in Kirkcaldy & Abbotshall, Fife (442)
Broughton, Peebles-shire can be found in Kilbucho, Broughton and Glenholm, Peebles-shire (763)

The 1881 censuses known to be missing are the second half of Dumfries (821) and the whole of Dunscore (822), both Dumfries-shire.

Hi Jacquie,

The 1841 lot have a number of explanations, more than SP has given. The enumeration books for Auchinleck and these Fife ones, plus a few more parts of parishes that were split across county boundaries from Fife were lost, presumed not to have completed the journey from London to Edinburgh (lost overboard from a ship is one version alleged, but I have not seen that verified). Cromdale is correctly explained. The other ones were not parishes at the time of the 1841 census, so the households later in these districts were enumerated in the parishes that were there at that time. So, for these ones it is not that the books have no entries, but that there were never any such books.
