1891 Census

Wanless-like names

Census Day: Night of 5th April
Fields: Name, relationship to head of household, marital status, age, occupation, birthplace (town & country). Place of residence (where the census was taken) is on the first line of each entry with the folio information. Standard English county abbreviations are used, and the following codes:

WI=wife
DA=daughter
GD=granddaughter
GS=grandson
HD=head
Lgr=lodger
M=married
U=unmarried
NP = nephew
NC=niece
Sis=sister
SO=son
SV or Ser=servant
 SL or SOLW=son in law (which might mean stepson or something other than the modern usage of in-law)

If there is a number first in an entry (1, 2, 3, etc.), it is a control number used by the contributors; ignore it, as it is not part of the original census data.
