The 1861 Census Return for Chrishall, Essex UK.


This entry has been copied from data kindly supplied by Angela Philips of Melbourne Australia. Angela is distantly related to the Brooks, Cranwell and Clarke families of Chrishall but her main interest is the Law family of Clavering. Whilst great care has been taken in copying the data, complete accuracy cannot be guaranteed. Genealogists should check with the Public Records Office or any of the family history websites such as Ancestry, if in any doubt. The enumerator’s spelling (eg Marther) has been retained.

What has also been retained are the enumerator’s comments which are lovely.  The enumerator was Mr Joseph Newman and while he starts off very organised he obviously got rather disillusioned, either with the job of enumerator or the people of Chrishall or both.  Towards the end of the return he starts to write down exactly what he is being told.  So we have entries for the question “Where Born” as “Go and ask I don’t care”, “He won’t tell because he don’t know” and “Folks can’t tell”. These are actual comments written in the return along with notes and question marks.  While obviously accurate information is important it brings it all much more to life! Enjoy!

    Thank you for sharing this information. I am a cranwell by birth and my reletives are from Frederick Charles Cranwell and Mary Smoothey. I wasnt expecting to find the smoothey family on the census so it was a surprise. Thank you once again for such an interesting site

      Hello Jennifer – it’s a pleasure – I’m glad you found some useful information.
