Willersey and nearby Villages Family Histories from Census Records


Some historical local families



If you are tracing your family history, finding out who lived in a certain house many years ago or conducting an academic study into say social mobility or occupations in the past then you may well find these records very useful.
They are taken from eight Willersey census records. In the UK a census is taken every ten years.
These records come from 1841, 1851, 1861, 1871, 1881, 1891, 1901 and 1911. The type of information collected varies slightly from decade to decade.
The population of Willersey at the last census in March 2011 was 816.
