1821 Census - Trowbridge
« on: Saturday 07 August 10 17:46 BST (UK) »
Hi all

I have read that the 1821 Census for Trowbridge survived. Does anyone has access to this or know where I can find it?

Thanks

Louise

Hi

Welcome to rootschat  :)

I would imagine that it would be at Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre  Records Office. These early census generally only listed the head of the household.

Thanks for your help.

Without a trip to the records office, I don't think I am going to solve my problem. I found another forum with a lady who had the information on fiche, I have sent her a message in some hope she'll reply but her post on there was dated 2008.

I'll keep searching.

Just in case anybody would like to help me in my quest, I am searching for the Whitcombe/Whitcomb/Witcomb/Witcombe family born in Trowbridge, especially John (the father) born c1780/1790 who married Ann Heals in 1816 in Trowbridge (St James Church). His married cert states he was a widow. Trying to search for his first wife and his parents.

Thanks

Louise

This marriage keeps popping up but it seems that John and Jemima were having childen at the same time as John and Ann - so I don't think this is it!

The reason for my search of the 1821 census, I am trying to find clues as to other family members and I know the census wont tell me a lot but I have been informed that as well as their 4 sons, they also had 2 daughters, which don't show up on any census' that I can find nor on the IGI.
