The 1841 Census Return

We have been able to gain access to a poor copy of a page from the 1841 Ruislip Census Return.  It provides the following details:

Parish or Township of Ruislip Middlesex

Name

Sex

Age

Profession, etc.

Born in this country

William Phillips

Male

25

National Schoolmaster

Yes

Eliza Phillips

Female

23

 

Yes

Thomas Watson

Male

12

 

Yes

George Watson

Male

11

 

Yes

 

There is a mismatch in the age of Eliza Phillips given here (23) and the 1851 return (38). The 1841 return would appear to be in error, since the 1851 age agrees with the 1861 census (49). Possibly when the record was transferred from original notes an '8' (28) was mistaken for a '3' (23).
