1851 Census of Reiff, Parish of Lochbroom/Ullapool, Ross & Cromarty

The following transcription is of my fuzzy photocopy of the 1851 census
for Reiff, spelt Riff then.

The columns on the 1851 census read;

No. of Householder's Schedule

Name of Street, Place, or Road, and Name or No. of House

NAME and SURNAME, of each Person who abode in each house,
on the Night of the 30th March, 1851

Relation to Head of Family

Condition

Age of
     Males
     Females

Rank, Profession, or Occupation

Where Born


The 27 households are numbered consecutively from 65 to 91, I have only transcribed data from the 8 pages with each family marked as living at "Riff", and have followed the enumerators naming pattern. I have ignored the page separations, as many households spilled over from one page to the next. I have identified the households by using a prefix of "51" to denote the 1851 census data, and a suffix based on the enumerators numbering.

Everyone is shown as born in RossShire.
