Transcriber's Notes:

 No line numbers appear on the original census and have been assigned to indicate the
 enumeration order.  Odd numbered pages are extended farming statistics not transcribed.

 Pages are bound out of order, then page numbers were stamped.  The transcriber has put
 Family/dwelling numbers in order.  Stamped page numbers are now out of order.

 Page binding is tight, at times making columns in the center fold (Owner of Land, Pauper,
 etc) impossible to see.

 Gender was left blank by the enumerator on page 774.
