The 18 households are numbered from 92 to 110, appearing on pages 28 to 33 of Enumeration District 8 for the Parish of Lochbroom. I have identified the households by using a prefix of "51" for the year of the census, and a suffix which is the Schedule number for that household. Unless otherwise noted all the inhabitants were born in the Parish of Lochbroom, Ross Shire.

92 | 93 | 94 | 95 | 96 | 97 | 98 | 99 | 100 | 101 |
