1841 Census
« on: Thursday 04 March 21 23:21 GMT (UK) »
Hi all Im trying to find the 1841 census record for Curban NSW,
The book "9 Dormer, M., 1983. The Bushmanís Arms" says that the 1841 census show there was 17 people living there but Ive tried searching the states census records for the town including various spelling also nearby towns and nothing shows up and county (Bligh) am I missing something?
In the 1830 Curban was known as Bennetts-run then Kirban now Curban

It might be one of the areas where only statistical information survives with no heads of households named.  The 13 adult males, two adult females and two female children may be the best you can hope for.
