|The 1841 Census (Annotated)
from the 1841 census for the parish of Croydon-cum-Clopton have been provided
as a background resource to the 'Speculum Gregis'. The census was taken
on the night of Sunday 6 June 1841 (ie 2 years before the 'Speculum Gregis' was written).
(1) The names listed in the census include a number of transcription errors. I
have added the generally accepted name taken from the Church Records and/or from
the pages of the 'Speculum Gregis' in [square brackets] where appropriate.
(2) I have also added family information in [square brackets] where appropriate.
(3) The ages taken at the 1841 census were approximate. All ages 15 and above
should have been rounded down to the nearest 5 year multiple, i.e. ages shown
as 15 may be 15-19, ages shown as 20 may be 20-24, etc.
(4) The enumerator
also reported that 26 Croydon labourers were "having left the district for
the hay harvest in the neighbourhood of London", which would explain the
absence of a number of the known heads of households.
