 Source of Census Information
The National Archives (TNA, previously the PRO or Public Record Office) are guardians of the original documents for all English census years. These can be viewed at the TNA, Family Records Centre, or many local record offices including the Centre for Kentish Studies at Maidstone.

1841 Census
There are various CDs available with copies of the 1841 census for Kent. As far as I am aware there are no other indexes available for the Staplehurst 1841 census.

1851 Census

As far as I am aware, there is not another index or transcription of the  Staplehurst 1851 census. I have not been able to purchase a CD with the 1851 census for Kent to date, although several companies have announced plans to provide this in the future.

1861 Census
There are CD's available containing Kent 1861 Census enumerator pages,  Archive CD  do an excellent quality but there are other suppliers with this census as well. In March 2005, the TNA included the 1861 Census on the Online Documents Site and Ancestry now also have a copy. With both these online sites you can view the original enumerators pages.

1871 Census
Original documents are as above. The KFHS (Kent Family History Society) have produced a CD of census transcriptions which includes Staplehurst 1871 Census.
Ancestry also has the census on-line with actual enumerator pages to view and a surname index.

1881 Census
A transcription of the 1881 Census is available on-line free of charge from the FamilySearch site. Recently Ancestry have included actual copies of the enumerators pages on their site which are indexed.

1891 Census
The 1891 census is available online via the Ancestry site, fully indexed with copies of the enumerator's pages.

1901 Census
The primary site for access to the 1901 census is the National Archives website which is a pay to view site and fully indexed. Ancestry also has the census on-line.
