Census of England, Scotland and Wales 1841

The 1841 census was the first to be carried out after the 1836 General Registration Act and as a result it was carried out by the Registrar General. It became a more complete census than those that had gone before with more questions focusing on family and community.[1] Therefore, it is of great importance to genealogist and family historians. There were 24 people with the Buggy name listed in the census returns.[2]
