Book Condition: Very Good
Book Description Dublin: H.M.S.O. 1882., 1882. Ages, Civil and Conjugal Condition, Occupations, Birthplaces Religion and Education of the People. 167 pp. 34 x 21.5 cm. Blue paper covers. The cover is worn and edge chipped, and the rear cover is detached, but present. Taken on the night of the 3rd April 1881, the report presents the population and land as it stood at that point. The land, its size and valuation, and the number of people living on it, is broken down by barony, town, and townland, and by Poor Law unions. The baronies for Antrim are Antrim Lower, Antrim Upper, Belfast Lower, Belfast Upper, Cary, Dunluce Lower, Dunluce Upper, Glenarm Lower, Glenarm Upper, Kilconway, Massereene Lower, Massereene Upper, Toome Lower and Toome Upper. The level of detail in the 1881 census surpasses that of all before it, and is only comparable with the 1871 census in terms of anything previous. We are shown figures for hospitals, gaols and workhouses, ages of husbands and wives in relation to each other, people's occupations, army and police figures, numbers of foreigners, numbers of disabled, religious affiliations, education standards reached, literacy levels, levels of Irish and English, and figures for emigration. All of these categories are broken down in detail, and compared with figures from previous censuses. As well as the figures for the county, there are parallel figures and tables for Belfast City. The statistical analysis is all that survives of this Census. The original material was destroyed by the British Government during WWI. Bookseller Inventory # 17844
