Early British
Census Project

The database covers British and Irish census records from 1801 to 1840.

Search Censuses

  • This search tool does exact searches only, so try a variety of spellings, initials, and abbreviations.
  • Searching just by location and/or occupation will display the total numbers in each category and list the corresponding names.
  • Some census returns list both individual and household occupations, some list only one category. This means you might get overlapping results between household and individual searches.
