The 1861 UK Census
The 1861 UK census is virtually identical to that from 1851, with the addition of the 1841 census question about uninhabited buildings and houses.
It identified all individuals in a household, along with their relationship to the head of the family.
The census occurred as of the night of April 7, 1861. All persons were to be recorded in the actual place where they spent the night, regardless of where they actually lived.
The 1861 census covered England, Wales, Scotland, the Isle of Man, and the Channel Islands.
The questions asked on this census were as follows:
- Road, Street, etc., and Name or Number of House
- Uninhabited (U) or Building (B)
- Name and Surname of each Person
- Relation to head of family
- Age of
- Rank, Profession, or Occupation
- Where born
- Whether blind, or deaf and dumb
