1841 Census: Workhouse

The newly-built Workhouse was enumerated separately. The inmates would have come from the villages in the Winslow Union as well as Winslow itself. Read more about one of them, Eliza Kirk. There were only 49, vastly below the building's capacity.

The enumerator bracketed some people together as family groups, and this has been indicated by lines above and below the names. It does not seem to have been done consistently.

See 1841 Census introduction for more information.
