Who Do You Think You Are?

The 1851 Census


Joe found Robert Wilkinson in the 1851 census of England and Wales living with his grandparen­ts in the place of his birth, St Ives in Cambridges­hire. Although he was only 10 years old we know that he had already started work because he is listed as a chimney sweep. Census returns are available on all of the major genealogic­al websites; the exception is the newly released 1921 census of England and Wales, which is exclusive to Findmypast (see page 28). We found Robert’s return on TheGenealo­gist ( thegenealo­gist.co. uk), and subscriber­s to the website can view the record here: tinyurl.com/the ggenealogi­st-g1851-wilkinson.
