1814 Census - VERY LARGE HTML FILE


List of Families and Cattle upon the Island St. Helena
taken 30th Sept. 1814

transcribed and contributed by Christine Adams

The Following Census appears in:
The East India Company Council Consultations 1678 -1836, Vol. Feb. 1813 - Feb. 1815.
[Avail. on LDS Microfilm #1259088]

It is reproduced here verbatim. The reader should be aware that the record was handwritten and microfilmed, and the names are subject to my interpretation. A ( ) indicates that the content was unclear. In all cases, re-examination of the original source document is recommended. Note: Do = "ditto" and means that the surname above is repeated.

Apparently, members of the Civil and Miliitary were named here if they had property or families, but they were not counted in this detail. See for example the record for "Dulain, Chris". There is no number indicating men in his family (himself), but he is listed here because he had a wife. His count is apparently included in the bulk Civil and Military entry at the end of the record.

My totals as calculated by computer differ with the original enumerator. In all cases, I have checked and double checked my individual entries, and am satisfied that they match the manuscript. The columns on the original are hand-made, and marks and calculations within any column, esp. when done manually, would be liable for error.
