Description
 
This is an important record for anyone who had family in New South Wales in 1828 or earlier. This is the ONLY surviving census for New South Wales. It is not widely known that the original 'household returns' survive for a quarter of the population in the New South Wales 1828 census. The published volume (1980 and 1985 and the CD 2001) did not include all the details from these returns.

This revised edition not only does, but it corrects many errors made by the Colonial Secretary's clerks in the original volumes that they created.

This edition of the census also splits up all the farms and details of stock on the extant returns, not previously published. It also incorporates the location of all the gangs and road parties and men at government establishment.

Containing the details of approx. 35,000 people in the census itself, this is an important reference source for anyone with connections to people in early New South Wales. Information has been extracted and entered into a searchable database. You can find the following information (although not everyone has all fields filled in):

  • Surname
  • First Name/s
  • Age
  • Class (ie. absolute pardon, born in colony or at sea, came free, convict, free, government employ, in irons, New Zealander, ticket of leave etc.)
  • Ship
  • Year
  • Religion
  • Employment
  • Employment Organisation (ie. Road Gang, Government Worker etc)
  • Slops
  • Head of Household Surname
  • Head of Household First Name/s
  • Residence
  • District of Householder
  • and so much more ...

Please note: this CD does not contain images of the original pages of either the census or household returns, but data has been extracted from them.
