1801 and 1811 Nominal Censuses for Ealing

They're almost as rare as hen's teeth - pre 1841 nominal censuses in England and Wales. Occasional examples do survive usually in local archives and libraries.

The parish of Ealing. Middlesex, is a case where the original schedules of the 1801 and 1811 census survive and are held by the Ealing Local History Centre.

Over 5,000 people are counted in each census. As usual in early censuses only the heads of households are named.
