Notes:

The following notes to the table appeared in the original report.

1 Where the name of the Registration County in which a parish is situated differs from that of the County Proper to which it belongs, the name of the latter is stated in italics.
2 (W) or (W S) denotes that a Workhouse or Workhouse School belonging to the District is situated within the limits of the parish, and has been included in the return; (w) or (w s) denotes that a Workhouse or Workhouse School not belonging to the District is situated within the limits of the parish, but has been included in the return. A statement of the number of persons in the principal Public Institutions in each district will be found in Table 6.
3 The AREAS which have been supplied by the Ordnance Survey Department are printed in Script type (e.g. Chessington 1250, sub-district 30 : 2). Those printed in French type (e.g. Charnham Street (Wilts) 2490, sub-district 113 : 3) were assigned to the parishes by the late Tithe Commissioners, and those printed in Arabic type (e.g. Baydon (Wilts) 3060, sub-district 113 : 3) were assigned to the parishes by the late Mr. Rickman, in the Enumeration Abstract for 1831. In these latter cases a more accurate estimate of the area is not at present procurable.
4 The areas marked thus (w) either include water or relate to parishes to which a portion of the tidal water or foreshore of contiguous rivers or creeks has been allotted. Such tidal water or foreshore is, however, not included in the areas. For details see Table 8.
5 Persons who, on the night of the 3rd April 1881, were on board barges or boats employed in inland navigation, and those who were on board sea-going vessels in harbours, rivers and creeks, are included among the general population.
6 In cases where detached parts of parishes have been transferred by Local Government Board Orders under the provisions of the Divided Parishes and Poor Law Amendment Act, 39 & 40 Vict. c. 61, the houses and population for 1871 have been corrected, that the figures may be compatible with those for 1881.

This website does not try to provide an exact replica of the original printed census tables, which often had thousands of rows and far more columns than will fit on our web pages. Instead, we let you drill down from national totals to the most detailed data available. The column headings are those that appeared in the original printed report. The numbers presented here, which are the same ones we use to create statistical maps and graphs, come from the census table and have usually been carefully checked.

The system can only hold statistics for units listed in our administrative gazetteer, so some rows from the original table may be missing. Sometimes big low-level units, like urban parishes, were divided between more than one higher-level units, like Registration sub-Districts. This is why some pages will give a higher figure for a lower-level unit: it covers the whole of the lower-level unit, not just the part within the current higher-level unit.
