I for Ireland?
« on: Monday 15 April 19 21:01 BST (UK) »
A relative is marked on the 1841 census as not born in the county. Archives have transcribed this as an I for Ireland.  Do you think this is correct?

If you look at the heading to that column is says ‘Whether born in Scotland Ireland or Foreign parts’

So: I = Ireland.
      S= Scotland
      F= Foreign Parts

Sorry, it says exactly what Jen said.
I just wondered if they may have put other letters, meaning other counties in there as well. I didn't think it was a definite 'I'
Thanks
