This is a transcript of part of the 1891 Census for the Registration District of Penzance which covers our area of interest. I acknowledge the assistance of the Free-CEN team, without whose help this would not have been possible, particularly Michael McCormick and Kay Hinnrichsen, the Cornwall Co-ordinators. This transcript corresponds to my first draft of the work I am doing for that project so has not had the benefit of their checking team. The format is subtly different as I worked first to a spread-sheet (which is this version) before entering the data into the database that the project required and includes additional material not required by FreeCEN.
|SD 2 (RG12/1856)||St. Ives including Halsetown plus Towednack and Zennor|

All the data is in the order of the census book i.e. "as-enumerated". It is presented in CSV (comma separated variables) format due to the unpredictable line lengths. This can be readily cut and pasted into a file accepted by most spreadsheet and database programs. The columns are described as follows, largely following the actual pages of the enumerator's book.
Columns A to D (1 to 5 in the book) are only filled in at the start of each household.
Ditto entries are replaced with the actual values propagated from above.
Other than as stated, everything is included as written.
