Desborough - Census - 1881

You are here: Desborough Study > Census Transcriptions > Census 1881

The 1881 census is too large to display it as a single page, so you will need to select the individual Districts from the links below. The information that follows each link is transcribed from the census "Description of Enumeration District". The District number relates to its position in the Registration District (Kettering) and Registration Sub-District (Rothwell). The enumerators were both Desborough residents. The links on their names take you to their descendent trees.

So that you don't lose the benefits of seeing households in context with their neighbours, the first few households of district 10 will be shown at the end of district 9.
