The Westmorland Census of 1787.

Vital Statistics. The Westmorland "Census" of 1787. Loraine Ashcroft, Ed. Curwen Archive Texts, 1992. A printed copy of the surviving returns of the unique population survey of Westmorland made in December 1787. This book provides a fascinating insight into life in Westmorland two hundred years ago. Listing thousands of names and fully indexed, this book will be of interest to both local and family historians. (414 pages). ISBN 1897590008.

In December 1787, the Westmorland Court of Quarter Sessions commissioned a population survey of the county. Parish constables were ordered to send in returns listing the names and occupations of the members of every household in their area. No one knows exactly why the survey was undertaken but the surviving returns provide a fascinating insight into life in Westmorland 200 years ago.

Most of the Census did not survive or no returns were given. As more information comes to hand on Storey / Story entries, they will be updated or corrected.
