Hundreds and Wapentakes: The 1841 UK Census

Ancestry.com has the 1841 UK Census up and running—16 million names from England, Wales, the Channel Islands, and the Isle of Man. This makes the UK Census Collection (1841-1901) complete. You'll need a World Deluxe Membership to take a peek, or else sign up for a free trial.

Since people were enumerated "at the location where they spent the night on census night," don't forget to check the local brothels for your hard-to-find ancestors.
