  • [The Census of Ireland, 1881 - Area, Houses, and Population: Also the Ages, Civil or Conjugal Condition, Occupations, Birthplaces, Religion, and Education of the People. Province of Ulster. County of Fermanagh.] Taken on the night of the 3rd April 1881, the report presents the population and land as it stood at that point. The land, its size and valuation, and the amount of people living on it, is broken down by barony, town and townland, and by Poor Law unions. The baronies for Fermanagh are Clanawley, Clankelly, Coole, Knockinny, Lurg, Magheraboy, Magherastephana and Tirkennedy. The level of detail in the 1881 census surpasses that of all before it, and is only comparable with the 1871 census in terms of anything previous. We are shown figures for hospitals, gaols and workhouses, ages of husbands and wives in relation to each other, people’s occupations, army and police figures, numbers of foreigners, numbers of disabled, religious affiliations, education standards reached, literacy levels, levels of Irish and English, and figures for emigration. All of these categories are broken down in detail, and compared with figures from previous censuses. Disbound, housed in protective file. Some leaves loose.

  • [The Census of Ireland, 1871 - Area, Houses, and Population: Also the Ages, Civil Condition, Occupations, Birthplaces, Religion, and Education of the People. Province of Ulster. County of Fermanagh.] The 1871 census is the first in Ireland to resemble what we would consider a modern census. Like the previous reports for Ireland it includes updated figures for population, land (size and valuation) and houses, all given in their total county context, and also broken down to figures for every barony, town and townland. The baronies for Fermanagh are Clanawley, Clankelly, Coole, Knockinny, Lurg, Magheraboy, Magherastephana and Tirkennedy. However this report contains far greater detail about the population as it stood on the night of the 2nd of April 1871. The accommodation is classed from 1st to 4th in order of its standard. We are shown figures for hospitals, gaols and workhouses, ages of husbands and wives in relation to each other, people’s occupations, army and police figures, numbers of foreigners, numbers of disabled, religious affiliations, education standards reached, literacy levels, levels of Irish and English, and figures for emigration. All of these categories are broken down in detail, and compared with figures from previous census’. Disbound, housed in protective file.
