Serampore Census 1840

Sylvia Murphy has very kindly sent FIBIS a transcription of the Serampore Census 1840 which has now been uploaded to the FIBIS database website. Sylvia transcribed the data herself and has provided the following description.

This data set is a transcription of the census of the European portion of Serampore, (also known as Fredriksnagore) and still Danish Territory in 1840 when the census was taken. All residents, including natives, recorded as living in the area are included. The entire population of Serampore was much large, but no attempt was made to transcribe or index those portions of the town where there were no residents thought to have British or European origins. Columns A (ID), F (Household No), G (Person No) and R (Comment) were added by Sylvia Murphy to assist in the identification and grouping of households etc. The source document used for this project was on LDS microfilm 39196 from original records held in the Danish Archives in Copenhagen. The data-set was prepared in 2007 for a Local History study towards an Advanced Diploma in Local History (Oxford). It is entirely the work of Sylvia Murphy and should not be reproduced without permission or reference to her.

Full entry details for the Serampore Census 1840, such as address, occupation, religion etc., are only available to FIBIS members when logged in to the FIBIS database website. Non-members will only be able to view the names.
