1851 Burwash Census
Reference HO 107/1639: Ticehurst Enumeration District No 1c; Sub-District: Burwash; Enumerator: Thomas Vigor
All that part of the Parish of Burwash which lies to the East and South comprising Willards Hill Farm, Ludpit, Fontridge, Quarters, Perrymans Farm, Dudwell and Park Mills, the Park, Forge, Perch Hill and all the South side of the said branch of the River Rother to Willingford Lane and the extremity of the Parish on the South side (including Hutchings, Fishers, Daws, Brickhouse and Bowmans Farms).
Please note:
  • These census records have been transcribed from images of the original census sheets. Whilst all care has been taken, the result is an interpretation of the original which is available at Local Record Offices, from The National Archives, and from ancestry.co.uk
  • Occupation has been unified (e.g. Ag Lab, Farm Lab, and many other such recordings are all displayed as Farm labourer).
  • The Sheet Number is as shown on the original document and is linked to a page showing all the entries on that Sheet (as well as entries from the following or previous sheet where the entry for the location covers more than one sheet).
  • In those instances where the Census entry is incorrect or missing and it has been possible from other sources to derive a correction, then these changes are shown inside square brackets, e.g. [Wife]
