  • Who is the head of this household?
  • What is the name of his wife?
  • What is the age difference between the man and his wife?
  • How many children are in this family?
  • Who else lives in the household?
  • Who might have crossed out the name of Eleanora Maund and written ‘Wife away’ at the bottom of the form?
  • Why was Edward Maund cross with his wife? (see his comments on the bottom of the form)
  • What clues does this census return give us about some men’s attitudes to the role of women?
