Census query
« on: Sunday 02 December 18 09:05 GMT (UK) »
Good morning,

Does anyone know how the occupants of prison hulk ships were recorded? Were they recorded in the county in which they were sitting or nearest or elsewhere on seperate schedules? I can see that Find My Past have a separate register for prisoners on hulks but where would I find staff?

Did you try  searching by occupation in the keyword box?
