Clapham what area
« on: Thursday 14 October 04 21:36 BST (UK) »
I wonder if anyone can tell me what area Clapham would have come under for the 1851/61 census I am putting out requests for Clapham Surrey and could be in the totally wrong area.
Fleetwood all areas of UK but Surrey in particular.

Hi,

For the 1851 and 1861 Clapham is in Surrey.  You are on the right track.

Clapham (Wandsworth Reg Dist) was in Surrey County, but for Census purposes it was in London.
