1891 NSW Census
The following information has been taken from the State Records website.
This was the first census to survive in substance after the 1841 Census. Records of the intervening censuses are believed to have been destroyed in the Garden Palace fire on 22 September 1882. Only householders are listed. The names of the other people resident in the household are not identified.
About the 1891 Census
The 1891 Census was taken on the 5th April 1891. The index to the collectors’ books records provides:
- the name and number of the Census district
- sub-district (borough or municipal district, ward, township or village, goldfield or island).
- book number
- item number
- reel number

|Wellington||E Hill End||5||2545||[2/8406]|
