Coverage

1841

Because the 1841 census was organised by the ancient Hundreds, this transcript covers most of the County, however there are a few places where they do not entirely match up with the county boundary of the time. Near the border with Devon there are a few parishes which were in Cornwall in 1841 but were reorganised into Devon just three years later. As a consequence there are the following discrepancies.

1891

This transcript covers all of the Cornwall registration districts, however this does not entirely match up with the county boundary. Near the border with Devon some parishes are the wrong side of the boundary. As a consequence there are the following discrepancies.

Devon parishes included in the Cornwall registration districts
