1841 lookup Somerset County (Meare) for ROOD
« on: Wednesday 30 November 05 20:25 GMT (UK) »
Hello.  I would be very grateful if someone could look at the 1841 census for Meare in Somerset for my ancestors.

1) Thomas Rood, born in Meare, would have been about 45 in 1841.  His wife, Ann, would have been about 40.  They have children, but that is where my sources conflict.  I know for sure of twins, Robert & Walter, who would be about 17 in 1841.  I'm hoping you can find this family and all of the children. 

2)  Also, Thomas's parents are Robert & Mary Rood.  I think one or both of them may still be alive in 1841.  Also in Meare.  Robert would be in his late 70s.  Do you see a Robert & Mary around? 

I would be thrilled if someone can find this information.  Thank you kindly.

Susan,
I am absolutely delighted!  Thank you so much  ;D

I'm wondering...     do you know what month the 1841 census was taken?  Also, I've seen scattered references to earlier census, i.e. 1821.  Are there any earlier census for Meare at all?

I'm going to assume that "FS" and "MS" mean 'female servant' and 'male servant'.  Would you assume the same?

Thank you again for your help.  I really appreciate it.  Sidney

Hi Sidney,

The 1841 census was taken on 7th June.

I don't know of any 1821 census that still exist.  I believe the few that were taken was carried out by the Overseers of the poor.

Yes, I assumed the same as you, Female Servant and Male Servant.  :D

Looking back to this old post... Thomas Rood mentioned is my 4th great uncle would love to find distant cousins and try to fill the gaps!
