Extracts from the 1861 Census, Frome Sub-District

Enumeration Districts 13-14 (outlying parts)

 

Kindly transcribed by Michael Sprackling, August 2002

 

“These are selective extracts.. I am abbreviating somewhat by generally showing surname only where it differs from the one immediately preceding and county of birth only where it is other than Somerset. Any entry in [ ] represents what appears to have been inserted at a later date but [deleted] is my observation.”
