   Parish- or sub-Parish-level Unit
Chronology:
The data cover the period 1881 to 1911.

Sources:

  1. The data originally appeared as the main tabulation in each of the county sections in the two volumes of the 1831 Enumeration Abstract.


Notes:

  1. This table is created by copying the par_1831_ew table within the database, but sums figures to obtain totals for ancient parishes.
  2. This version of the 1831 census table is considered temporary. It includes all of England and Wales although a few places have none matches due to borough and ExP listings rather than parishes. It also includes polygon columns, which contain polygons relating to 1831 anicent parishes. The script creating this table does ad-hoc temporary changes to enable the two datasets to match within this table. It does not change any of the data permanently.


Checking:

  1. No additional checking done.
