1841 Census Wrexham - abbreviations what do they mean?
« on: Wednesday 26 January 05 09:49 GMT (UK) »
A very kind person provided me with a lookup on the 1841 census for Wrexham and there are abbreviations on there that neither of us know what they mean.

1) John Fegan, 35, Hawker, (born of this parish - I)
2) Thomas Fegan, 30, Labourer, (born of this parish - F)

Anyone know what the "I" or the "F" mean?

I would have thought the answer would only be Yes or No - all other members of the Fegans in Wrexham are Yes or No except these two!

Any ideas appreciated!
Thanks

Hi, Do you know if the Wrexham look up was provided from a CD rom? If it was kindly ask the individual to click the link to the abbreviation menu all the abbreviations should show up there.
