Census Records

Year Description
1821 The Census of 1821 was taken on 28th May 1821. The original census was destroyed in the Four Courts fire in 1922 but returns of 16 parishes from County Cavan had been copied and stored in Cavan Courthouse until they were later transferred to the Public Records Office - now the National Archives. Returns for the following parishes have survived:
Annagelliffe Ballymachugh
Castlerahan Castletara
Crosserlough Denn
Drumlumman Drung and Larah (joint returns)
Kilbride Kilmore
Kinawley Lavey
Lurgan Mullagh
Munterconnaught
1841 The Census of 1841 was taken on 6th June 1841and included all persons who were in the house that night. The returns also include those from the household who had died in the previous ten years and those who were away from the household - either in the county, in other parts of Ireland or abroad. Killeshandra is the only full parish that has survived for all of Ireland and contains almost 14,000 persons but is not yet fully computerised.
