*1 Note that Old Sarum only had six males and six females. Before the Great Reform Act of 1832 it only had six residents but had an MP, consequently it was called a Rotten Borough. See Wikipedia.

These Census pages are in the same diary as the pages of Abner Burrough's voyages to and from Australia so it is assumed that they were written by him.
