Census Records

For access to the 1841 to 1911 London censuses, see the England Census article.

Earlier censuses, dated 1801 to 1831, survive for several London parishes.[1] Record survival is identified on inidividual London parish pages.

London Records at the Family History Library describes London census holdings, parish-by-parish, available at that facility.

Census Substitutes

A variety of lists of historic residents of London have been preserved. Most list adult taxable males. A few identify family units. The Domesday Book (1086) does not include the City of London.[2]

Gibson identified lists of London census substitutes:

  • Gibson, J.S.W. and Heather Creaton. Lists of Londoners. Bury, UK: Federation of Family History Societies in Association with the Centre for Metropolitan History, c1999. FHL Book 942.1/L1 D43g 1999.
