Norfolk: Coston

Census: 1831

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

This 1831 Norfolk Record Office document [with the reference PD 320/20] is on one sheet of paper. It was in 3 columns which did not line up across the paper and were of unequal lengths.
