We have fully computer-searchable transcripts of the complete censuses for the Parishes of Stanhope and Wolsingham, which together cover the whole of Weardale.

The files are in a spreadsheet format searchable by a number of useful fields – surname, forenames, residence, birthplace, occupation, etc – so that searchers can instantaneously locate all entries relating to a particular family or place.

Complete Census for

Stanhope and Wolsingham Parishes 1841 - 1911

The Museum Trustees are grateful for the painstaking work carried out over many years by Dr John Backhouse in transcribing the Stanhope Parish Census and Eric Draper for transcribing the Wolsingham Parish Census.
