Richard KAYE Family: 1841 Census -- Dalton, Yorkshire, England

The 1841 Census was the first in England to include the names and other details of every person living in a residence, rather than just the head of household. However, the enumerators were instructed to round down the ages of everyone over the age of 15 to the nearest "5." Keep this in mind when you're trying to determine if a certain person belongs to your family -- the age shown on this chart could be off by as much as 5 years!

Ages for Richard Sr., William Worthington and Elizabeth are apparently rounded down. Richard Sr. was born in 1793, so would be about 48 years old. William Worthington was born in 1822; he would be 19. Elizabeth was born in 1824; she would have been 17.

Also, wife Sarah is not included in this family group; we know she was alive, as she appears in the 1851 Census of Huddersfield. Quite possibly she was across town, visiting eldest son Jesse Ingham Kaye and his wife Nancy (Dransfield) and their two-week-old daughter. (Jesse, Nancy and their newborn daughter are shown living in a large household with Nancy's parents, Joseph & Nancy Dransfield; the Dransfield's son William and his family; and a daughter Eliza Dransfield.)
