      (2) George MARCHANT is listed in a household headed by James FRANKS in the 1841 census of Riverhead, Sevenoaks, Kent, England.

      George is listed in the 1841 census as a bricklayer who was then 20 years of age; therefore, according to the 1841 census, he was born in about 1821. However, because of the way ages were rounded in the 1841 census, he could have then been as old as 24 years of age. According to the 1841 census, he was born in Kent, England.

      * * *

      The 1841 Census for England was taken on the night of 6 June 1841. The following information was requested:

      • Name of street, avenue, road, etc.
      • House name or number
      • Surname of head of household
      • Name of persons who had spent the night in the household
      • Age*
      • Sex
      • Person's occupation
      • Where born**

      *The ages of people over 15 years old were usually rounded down to the nearest 5 years. Therefore, someone who was actually 24 years would have their age listed as 20, and someone who was actually 27 years old would have their age listed as 25.

      **The "Where Born" column only asked two questions - 1) whether born in same county, and 2) whether born in Scotland, Ireland, or Foreign Parts. Possible answers and abbreviations to question #1 include: Yes (Y), No, (N), or Not Known (NK). For question #2, the following abbreviations were used: Scotland (S), Ireland (I), and Foreign Parts (F).
