Sussex Census Returns 1841 - Volume 7
The 1841 Census was taken on the night of the 7th June. The persons in each household are listed with their occupations but the relationship between them is not shown. The ages up to 14 are supposed to be correct and those above 14 have generally been rounded down to a multiple of five, e.g. 24 was reduced to 20 and 29 to 25. With regard to the places of birth, 'Y(es)' stands for those born in the county of their residence and 'N(o)' for those not born in the same county.
The 1841 Census is the earliest and most complete record of the inhabitants in Sussex in existence. It is therefore of tremendous importance to family historians, often providing the bridge between the civil registration records that started in 1837 and parish records that in some cases date back to 1538.
