Transcription of the 1891 Census for the Parish of
Norton Bavant

The following pages have been transcribed from the original census returns. The following should be noted:

  1. The normal convention has been followed whereby original spellings have been retained, even when obviously incorrect, eg Marn Hull instead of Marnhull, and Louie instead of Louise.
  2. The 3 columns detailing habitation have been omitted.  In the few cases where a property was not habited, this has been indicated in the Name column. 
  3. In comparison to the 1901 census, there is no postal numbering system within the village in 1891 and most properties are just recorded under “The Village”.  However the schedule does seem to follow roughly the same route around the parish.
  4. It is interesting to note the absence of heads of household of both the Mill House and the Manor House.  A note by a researcher on the Ancestry site states that the parents of Mary Jeans and her siblings at the Mill House were away at their grandparents’ house on census day and so no head of household was recorded.
