Census, People and Genealogy – 1871 Census

Created by Julie Goucher, 2021 using Wordscloud

Continuing with the Census, People and Genealogy series – all posts can be found HERE. There is also a Census downloadable to be found HERE.

We see in the 1871 Census an increase in the description of the village and properties included in the census. In this instance it shows the order of the properties included.

In the family details we see several changes –

George Ellis (the line in yellow on the image above) has not remarried and is still recorded as a widower. He is aged 60 and working as an agricultural labourer. His place of birth is Guildford in Surrey. He is residing in The Street in Puttenham and in the household of his daughter, Caroline who was born in 1844 and her husband, Henry Harris. They have four children, my late Great grandmother has not yet been born, and would not be for another eight years.

I thought that I would share this photograph of Henry Harris and Caroline, formerly Ellis. This was taken by late Great Aunt when Caroline and Henry celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary in 1924.
