Lincolnshire in 1881

Taken on the 3rd April 1881, the census collected the following information from Lincolnshire: full name, exact age, relationship to head of household, gender, occupation, parish and county of birth, medical disabilities.

There were nearly on the day of the census; with nearly 30 million living in the UK. Queen Victoria was the reigning monarch, while William Gladstone was the Prime Minister.

It was a dramatic time at home and abroad for the people of Lincolnshire; the First Boer War ended a couple of weeks before the Census was taken.
