Penketh, Lancashire - 1821, 1831 census
« on: Thursday 31 January 08 17:29 GMT (UK) »
In Penketh Library, there are photocopies of 1821 and 1831 census. 

I have transcribed the names and details, not very much detail -
Both censuses -
1st page - Name of head of household, type of occupation, number of males/females/total in house
2nd page of 1821 census gives a breakdown of ages, fairly easy to read
2nd page of 1831 census gives a further breakdown of occupations but is more difficult to read

STEER, mainly Surrey, Kent; PINNOCKS/HAINES, Gosport, Hants; BARKER, mainly Broadwater, Sussex; Gosport, Hampshire; LAVERSUCH, Micheldever, Hampshire; WESTALL, London, Reading, Berks; HYDE, Croydon, Surrey; BRIGDEN, Hadlow, Kent and London; TUTHILL/STEPHENS, London
WILKINSON, Leeds, Yorkshire and Liverpool; WILLIAMSON, Liverpool; BEARE, Yeovil, Somerset; ALLEN, Kent and London; GORST, Liverpool; HOYLE, mainly Leeds, Yorkshire
