Disabilities


The terms used here, for example 'Idiot' or 'Imbecile', are those which were recorded in census and other records. Some of the disabilities shown appear to be age related, others refer to lifelong conditions. It is interesting to see that, even for lifelong conditions, this is not always shown on every census for that person.
