Census of Beaumaris 1821

This census of the population of Beaumaris was conducted in 1821. Two volumes were produced – this second volume lists the names of the householders and provides details about the number of families who were living in each house. Information is also given regarding the employment of the population. Families were asked whether they were either ‘chiefly employed in agriculture’, in ‘trade manufacturing or handicraft’, or other employment.
