1841 Census

 

Bonnybridge was not listed as a town on the 1841 census (see article in Issue 6 of Bonnyseen) but it was in 1851. It still came under the Civil Parish of Denny.

The 1841 census gives names and whether born in the county or not. If born outside the County then it might only state 'Scotland'. The ages were rounded up by 5 years so these can only be take as a rough estimate. No relationship is given. Occupations often have letters instead of words. e.g. F.S. would be Female Servant.

Although not filled with exact information, when used with information on following census, this can help in identifying who is whom on this census.

There were two area codes which came up under a search using Bonnybridge as an address.

475/01 gives the Civil Parish as Denny and 479/6A lists it as Falkirk. This is why there are two separate tables. Both have Bonnybridge as an address.

The names are listed here as they showed up and these are not typographic errors ( I hope) The Barns name below, should be Burns since I have done some research on the family who used to own the Railway Hotel.

The child listed as 'N K' was possibly not yet named when the census was taken.

The Miahie name, I have found in records as Mishie. However, I have not been able to find more on these two. There was  Mishie family in Alva, Clackmannanshire (Stirlingshire as it was then) But I have been unable to connect them.

The name Grizle, or Grizzle was the old name for Grace

The name Christian was the old spelling for Christine
