1861 Census Return - Potto

The 1861 Census for England was taken on the night of 7th April 1861. All responses were to reflect the individual's status as of 7th April 1861 for all individuals who had spent the night in the house. People who were traveling or living abroad were enumerated at the location where they spent the night on census night.
Information in this database:

There is a lot of information missing from the Potto 1861 census. There are only 15 houses mentioned in 1861 whereas there were 38 in 1851. Properties such as Potto Grange, Potto Carr Farm etc. are all missing. Maybe the enumerator was confused where the boundary of the Parish was!
