Census of England and Wales 1911

As Ireland was a part of the British Empire in 1911 this means that a census was also carried out in England, Scotland and Wales on April 2nd. Currently, the census for Scotland will not be released until 2011, 100 years after it was carried out. However the returns for England and Wales are available here. The index is free to search but you have to pay for actual census documents.

In total the Buggy name appears 130 times.[1] This is significantly less than the 1911 census in Ireland. We can see that the name is therefore very rare in England and Wales as there would have been a much higher population than in Ireland at the time. In fact there is no record of the name at all in Wales and it is only recorded in 13 of the 40 English counties/shires which were in existence at the time. Each county is divided into relevant districts where the name appears.

Variants: Bugg 1824, Bugge 33, Buggey 30, Buggie 15, Buge 8, Bogaig 0, Bug 0.
