search by place name
« on: Tuesday 15 February 11 13:16 GMT (UK) »
Is it possible to search censuses for place names instead of people names?
   My ancestors lived at Cwmemlew, Disserth but both died in 1870s when their children were too young to take over the farm.  I am interested to find out who took over the running of the farm at Cwmemlew.

Thanks, Kathryn

Hi Kathryn,

it is possible to do an address search but the two names you have listed are coming up blank

Is it near a village?
Middlesex   Burnett  Clark   Potter    Cleary    Avery    Moore Howard Jode Keating
Norfolk    Rudd    Twite    Hudson    Chapman Moore Spink Adams
Suffolk    Horne    Cadge    Sutton    King    Adams
Essex    Cable    Wright                         Cumberland  Forbes
Somerset Clarke (pre 1800)                  Cambridgeshire Muncey Parcell
Devon  Flashman                                   Limerick    Hannigan

Hi
As far as I know, Cwmemlew - or Cwmemblew - is the farm name, Disserth is the village or district.

Thanks, Junev - which census wer the Hammonds in residence?

Hi,

The reference was for the 1881 census.
