Find My Past, 1871 Census Update, 6 Feb. 2008

FINDMYPAST.COM ADDS TEN NEW COUNTIES TO THE 1871 CENSUS.

NB. Find My Past is a "pay per view" site.

Ten more counties have now been added to the 1871 census of England and Wales on findmypast.com - these are Cambridgeshire,Cheshire, Derbyshire, Durham, Hertfordshire, Huntingdonshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Oxfordshire. There are now 34 complete counties online at findmypast.com, equating to 90% of the population surveyed in this census. It is expected that the remaining 25 counties will be added later this month as part of findmypast.com's mission to offer a full set of England and Wales censuses online by the end of 2008.

Some historical background to the 1871 census

The census was taken on the night of 2 April 1871 and gave the total population of England and Wales as 22,723,000. The year was eventful: as well as the formation of the German Empire and crowning of Kaiser Wilhelm I, the Paris Commune was formed then crushed and Trade Unions were legalised in the UK.
Culturally, 1871 saw the opening of the magnificent Royal Albert Hall in London, the publication of Through the Looking Glass and Middlemarch and the premiere of Verdi's opera Aida.

How to search the 1871 census

Like all the censuses on findmypast.com, the new counties can be searched by name of person or you can choose to search by address, and also by a number of different fields, such as occupation or age. All the new records can be searched using our normal search tools.
