The Weald of Kent, Surrey and Sussex
1841 Maresfield Census
Reference: Maresfield Enumeration District 6
All that part of the Parish of Maresfield which lies on the East side of the Lewes and London turnpike road from the Budletts to Horney Common and on the South side of the Common and a road from thence by the Mill and Lampool Green to Duddleswell Gate. This district will take two or three cottages contiguous to the Gate on the North side of the road more conveniently than they can be taken by the enumerator appointed to district no 8 - consequence of them being remote from any house in that district.
Enumerator: Thomas Bourner

  • Occupation has been unified (e.g. Ag Lab, Farm Lab, and many other such recordings are all displayed as Farm labourer).
  • The Sheet Number is as shown on the original document and is linked to a page showing all the entries on that Sheet (as well as entries from the following or previous sheet where the entry for the location covers more than one sheet).
  • In those instances where the Census entry is incorrect or missing and it has been possible from other sources to derive a correction, then these changes are shown inside square brackets, e.g. [Wife]
