Desborough - Census - 1891
Unfortunately the 1891 census (with all its links) is so large that it is impractical 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 all local men. 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 2 will be shown at the end of district 1 and the beginning of district 3 will be shown at the end of district 2.
