Records: The Census

Updated on 29 July, 2012

Strays are those people who, although born in Great or Little Snoring, are found living outside Norfolk in the census.

Here you may search for your family members who lived outside their home village in all the census records from 1851-1911. [The 1841 census did not list birthplace.]

Some names seems to be transcribed incorrectly on the census. Please double-check. It cannot be guaranteed that ALL people living outside of the village have been included. For one reason, some people have not admitted on the census that they were born in Snoring. Also, the name is often wrongly transcribed as "Snaring" or "Laring" or other variations.
