1871 Frant Census
Reference RG10/1049: Ticehurst Enumeration District No 1
Part of the Parish of Frant comprising all the Houses in and about Frant Village, Frant Street and Frant Green including the Rectory, the Abergavenny Arms, Saxonbury Lodge, Shernfold Park and Gardens and the Porters Lodge on the Bells Yew Green Road as boundary Houses.
Enumerator: Nathaniel Edghill.
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]
