Week 5 - In the Census
A bit belatedly, I signed up to the #52ancestors challenge so I am starting on week 5. Over the years of researching my family history I have gathered a lot of information on the Waterfall side of my family and it has turned into a One Name Study.
So here is a graph to show how many Waterfalls there were in each census for England and Wales from 1841-1911
In 1841 the most people with the surname Waterfall are in Yorkshire with 42, followed by Derbyshire with 36 and Staffordshire with 26. By 1911 Derbyshire has 159 people with the surname Waterfall, Yorkshire 134 Waterfall and Nottinghamshire with 67.
