Migration Illustrated by Census Records 1841 – 1911

The census data below shows the number of family members per county at each census. You can clearly see the gradual migration from Hampshire in 1841 to Middlesex and London and also into Surrey and Essex. The tables also shows the increasing population of family members, which doubles in the 70 year period. (This data reflects our research data in February 2018)


The graph illustrates the percentage of the family in both Hampshire and London in the Censuses between 1841 and 1911, showing the percentage of the family in London increasing.
