Norfolk: Blakeney

Census: 1770

Blakeney is one of the few places in the county for which a census before 1841 containing names survives.

This 1770 Norfolk Record Office document [with the reference PD 619/31 and MF 1004/2] is on 3 sheets of paper. Each sheet on film had a number of columns. For transcription purposes each of these columns has been treated as a table indicated by [Table 'no'] before it.

Tables 1 through 6 list all the people and then Tables 7 and 8 list those with children (or in a few cases the children's names ) under 16 years.
