The Weald of Kent, Surrey and Sussex
1851 Burwash Census
Reference HO 107/1639: Ticehurst Enumeration District No 1d; Sub-District: Burwash; Enumerator: John Coppard
All that part of the Parish of Burwash which lies to the South West of the Turnpike Road leading from Burwash Wheel to Heathfield comprising the South West side of Willingford Lane to the extremity of the parish on the South West side (including Pook Hill, Quayham, Westdown, Glaizer's Forge, Scotsham, Watkins Down, Great and Little Poundsford Farms and Cox's Mill).
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]
