1821 Census Fragments

This census, organized by townland, civil parish, barony and county, took place on May 28th 1821, and aimed to cover the entire population. It recorded the following information:
  • name;
  • age;
  • occupation;
  • relationship to the head of the household;
  • acreage of land holding;
  • number of storeys of house.
1821 census Almost all of the original returns were destroyed in 1922, with only a few volumes surviving for parts of Counties Cavan, Fermanagh, Galway, Meath and Offaly (King's County). These are now in the National Archives. Once again, however, the ages given need to be treated with scepticism.
