This census was taken on the night of the 6th June 1841. While having some irritating omissions from what we find in later censuses, we find for the first time the record of all inhabitants of the village, not just those who pay tax (generally heads of households). The ages of adults are rounded up or down to the nearest 5 years (so a 28 year old would be recorded as “30”) and place of birth is recorded simply as “Born in the County (of Monmouthshire) or Not … those from other countries may be shown as being from Ireland, Scotland, etc.

The 1841 enumerator had a strange method of sometimes putting the wife as last in a household (after the servants) and used the word “ditto” strangely! In some cases people I knew to be related to the head of household (same surname) from later censuses etc, were noted below the servants as surname “ditto”. I have put the correct surname where known (on the first transcription I had assumed that ditto meant copy the name directly above).

NB, It is unclear here, whether the ditto refers to Lewis or Harris. In other families in the census, which could be verified by other data, the ditto has tended to mean that the person (in this case Rachel, Sarah, Edwin and Sarah) were ditto to the first named person in the family. I therefore now assume that their surname is Lewis, not Harris, which was my first assumption.
