2010. Hardback. Reproduction of:[The Census of Ireland, 1891 - Area, Houses, and Population: Also the Ages, Civil or Conjugal Condition, Occupations, Birthplaces, Religion, and Education of the People. Province of Leinster. King's County.] Taken on the night of the 5th April 1891, the report presents the population and land as it stood at that point. The land, its size and valuation, and the amount of people living on it, is broken down by barony, town and townland, and by Poor Law unions. The baronies for modern day Offaly are Ballyboy, Ballybritt, Ballycowan, Clonlisk, Coolestown, Eglish, Garrycastle, Geashill, Kilcoursey, Philipstown Upper, Phillipstown Lower and Warrenstown. The 1891 census was the last to be destroyed by the pre-independence government (Some of the prior censuses also met the same fate). As such all the returns are lost to scholars and genealogists. Terrible as that is, we are left with the reports, which provide a wealth of information. 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, levels of trade, 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 Bound in modern cloth. Originally published in 1893 by Alexander Thom & Sons in Dublin, for Her Majesty's Stationary Office. . . . . Books ship from the US and Ireland. Bookseller Inventory # 9780857371041
