1831 census records from Hampshire online

I've received the following announcement from Kevin Smith, which may be of interest to those with Hampshire connections in England:

A free Christmas present for genealogists researching Fordingbridge, Hampshire

The 1831 census for Fordingbridge Town, Burgate & Midgham, and Godshill Tything have been transcribed and are freely available at www.kevinRsmith.co.uk (scroll to the bottom of the page to find the links).

The 1831 census was taken on 30 May 1831 but, unlike later censuses, lists only the head of each household, along with the number of people in the household and the number in each type of occupation. These records are rare surviving examples of this census.

These Hampshire records join others available from Kevin R. Smith covering Dorset and Aberdeenshire.

(With thanks to Kevin Smith)
