North Westmorland Census 1851 Index
Compiled by David Lowis and Barbara Slack. Kemphowe 1988.
All heads of household plus unrelated males (e.g. farm servants) in the 1851 census
North Westmorland which comprises East Ward (PRO Ref HO 107 2439) and West Ward (PRO Ref HO 107 2440). East Ward consists of 532 folios each of two pages and West Ward 328 folios each of two pages. On the list of places included in the index the letter E or W indicates in which Ward the village or township is located.
All entries for a particular surname are grouped together. Under each surname heading the information is recorded as follows. Residence is given first followed by folio no. , first name, age, occupation, county of birth and lastly place of birth. At the conclusion on the index an appendix gives a list of entries where legibility was poor.
In the compilation of the index every effort had been made to ensure accuracy and consistancy, but in indexing such large quantity of information it is possible that mistakes or omissions have occurred. Users are advised therefore, as with all secondary sources, to check the original census returns where possible.
