Census Tracts for the Parish of Veryan, Cornwall, England

(Veryan is south-east of Truro)

In 1821, A pre-Census was taken by  the authorities.  This Census consisted of the names of all the Household Heads, their place of residence, their occupations, the genders and approximate ages of the head and the rest of the household.  The age was given as 20+ for a 25 year old person or 50+ for a 59 year old person. David James of Veryan transcribed this data and then searched out the members of the family- he found out the names of most of the spouses and many of their children so it is a useful tool for family researchers.
