The following transcription is of my photocopy of the 1891 census for Reiff, Faochag, and Camusglassellan. The census recorded the people who stayed the night of 5 April 1891.
In 1891 the enumerator spelled Reiff as "Reef", Faochag as "Feuchag", and Camusglassellan as "Camusaghlashan". The photocopy is pretty clear, and the handwriting more easily read than previous censuses.
Camusglassellan was a hamlet of only two houses, and as the people enumerated there were often included with Reiff, I have included their data. Faochag never had more than two Households, and the families there were also often included with Reiff. By time of this census only one family remains, and as the Head of Household is a 70 year old Widow I suspect this will be the last census when this most northerly of Coigach communities was populated.
The columns on the 1891 census read;
No. of Schedule Road, Street, &c. and No. or Name of House. Name and Surname of each Person. Relation to Head of Family. Condition as to Marriage. Age (last Birthday) of Males. Females. Profession or Occupation. Employer. Employed. Neither Employer nor Employed, but working on own account. Where Born. (to save space I only note those few born other than "RossShire Coigagh") Gaelic, or G. & E. Whether 1. Deaf and Dumb. 2. Blind. 3. Lunatic, Imbecile, or Idiot. Rooms with one or more Windows. I have not included all that data in this transcription, email me at email@example.com if there is some data in a missing column that you think might be of help.
Following the enumerators numbering system the households are numbered consecutively from 14 to 37. Faochag was spelled "Feuchag", Camusglassellan was spelled "Camusaghlashan", and Reiff as "Reef". 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 "91" to denote the 1891 census data, and a suffix based on the enumerators numbering.
