Llangunnor Census Records
The census has taken place every ten years (with the exception of 1941) since 1801, the ones prior to 1841 tending to only be a headcount of the population. For the historian the census helps us to build up a picture of the changes in the Llangunnor area over the years.
The census gives us information about household members such as name of the street, place or road name, name or number of the house, name or surname of person resident in the house on midnight of that date, relationship to head of family, (servants, lodgers), marital status, age, sex, profession or occupation, where born and infirmity which was officially for indicating any of the following mental or physical disabilities, using the politically incorrect language of the time: lunatic, feeble-minded, imbecile, blind, or deaf and dumb. Here in Llangunnor along with the rest of Wales they could also record their language.
We have completed transcribing the 1891, 1901 and 1911 census records for the parish of Llangunnor, we have checked these records and have made them available on the site free for private study and non commercial research.
We would like to point out that during the transcribing of the census records we noticed a wide variety of spellings of surnames and properties, wherever possible we have tried to cross reference these with birth/baptism records and other census records
Work has already started on transcribing the 1881 census records for Llangunnor and we are looking at providing statistical information of how the population of Llangunnor was made up on census night, to see how this has changed over the years.
