Respecting the manner in which Entries should be made
in this Book.
The process of entering the Householder's Schedules
in this Book should be as follows:-
The Enumerator should first insert, in the spaces at
the top of the page, the name of the Parish or Township, Ecclesiastical
District, City or Borough, Town or Village, to which the contents
of that page will apply, drawing his pen through all the headings
which are inappropriate. If the place be extra parochial, he should
draw his pen through the words "Parish or Township,"
in the first column, and write "Extra Parochial" after
the name of the place.
He should then, in the first column write the No. of
the Schedule he is about to copy, and in the second column the name
of the Street, Square, &c. where the house is situate, and the
No. of the house, if it has a No., or, if the house be situate in
the country, any distinctive Name by which it may be known.
He should then copy from the Schedule into the other
columns, all the other particulars concerning the members of the
family (making use if he please of any of the authorized contractions);
and proceed to deal in the same manner with the next Schedule.
Under the last name in any house he should draw
a line across the page as far as the fifth column. Where there is
more than one Occupier in the same house, he should draw a similar
line under the last name of the family of each Occupier; making
the line, however, in this case, commence a little on the left hand
side of the third column, as in the example on page vi.
Where he has to insert an uninhabited house, or a house
building, this may be done, as in the example, by writing in the
second column on the line under the last name of the last house
inserted, "One house uninhabited," " Three houses
building," as the case may be; drawing a line underneath, as
in the example.
At the bottom of each page, on the line for that purpose,
he must enter the total number of HOUSES in that page, separating
those inhabited from those uninhabited or building.
If the statement regarding any inhabited house is contiued from
one page to another, that house must be reckoned in the total of
the page on which the first name is entered. He must also
enter on the same line the total number of males and of females
included in that page.
When he has completely entered all the Schedules belonging
to any one Parish or Township, he should make no more
entries on the LEAF on which the last name is written, but should
write across the page, "End of the Parish [or Township]
of ---;" beginning the entry of the next Schedule on the next
subsequent LEAF of his book. The same course must be adopted with
respect to any isolated or detached portion of a distant parish;
which portion, for the sake of convenience, may have been included
in his District. When he has entered all the Schedules belonging
to any Borough, Ward, Tything, Hamlet, Village, Ecclesiastical
District, &c., he should make no more entries on that PAGE,
but write underneath the line after the last name, "End of
the Borough, [or Ecclesiastical District Hamlet, Tything, Ward,
Village, &c.,] of ---;" making his next entry on the first
line of the following PAGE.
In this way he will proceed until all his Householders'
Schedules are correctly copied into his Book; and he must then make
up the statement of totals, at page ii of his Book, in the form
there specified. He must also, on page iii, make up the summaries
there mentioned, in the form and according to the instructions there
