1881 Census Errors

  - for Habergham Eaves and Great Marsden

Researched and Compiled by Christine Haworth

    In the 1881 census transcriptions, both on the CD-Rom and the Microfiche versions, for three areas of Habergham Eaves [Burnley] and one area of Great & Little Marsden [Brierfield], the "Census Place" is incorrectly shown as "Whalley".  This error concerns over 1000 Householders and Lodgers in Habergham Eaves and over 200 Householders and Lodgers in Marsden.

So when searching on the 1881 Census, if you cannot find your ancestors at a 'known' address in Habergham Eaves or Marsden .. Try looking in Whalley !
