This census was done on 7 April 1861.
The columns on the 1861 census include;
No. of Schedule Road, Street, &c., and No. or Name of House. Name and Surname of each Person. Relation to Head of Family. Condition. Age of Males. Females. Rank, Profession, or Occupation. Where Born. (to save space I only note those few born other than "RossShire Coigagh") It also has columns I have not included; "Whether Blind, or Deaf and Dumb." "No. of Children from 5 to 15 attending School." "No. of Rooms with one or more Windows." The count of rooms with windows was invariably one or two per household.
A 'notes' file for this data is under construction.
I have identified the households by using a prefix of "61" to denote the 1861 census data, and a suffix which is the enumerator's schedule number.
