Binfield 1801 census

Eileen and John Bartlett and Angela Hillier, Eureka Partnership, 2009, A5, 28pp

Binfield is an extensive parish NE of Wokingham, in the Easthampstead registration district. Created by the incumbent, this rare survival includes notes about the families, and is thought to have been made to help him compile the numerical lists required for the official census. The original list was made in March 1801 and updated in November, with some later remarks. There is also a map compiled from the tythe map c1856 and the 1817 enclosure award. This booklet has been transcribed from the little used Berkshire records, with a brief history and explanation of the records used. It is a fantastic source of information for those fortunate enough to have ancestors in Binfield.
