1857 Knocknamuckly Census Returns

The 1857 Census was conducted by the minister of Knocknamuckly Church of Ireland and contain information of the townlands surrounding the church. A census of this nature is rare in Ireland for the 1850's, so it is thanks to the Reverend Abraham Dawson that this record is with us today.

I have made a transcript of all the McMurrays in all the townlands covered by the 1857 Census. The census was arranged in households, and I have kept that arrangement, the columns after each name is the age of each person at the time of the census.

The document can be downloaded here as a 196kb Microsoft Word document and includes extra information collected at the time of the cenus, e.g. if person could read. (Approximately 2 minute download)
