The National Census first began in 1801 and
was repeated once a decade thereafter. From 1841, personal information
on individuals was recorded. In the 1891 census below we can see that
the Rosenberg family are still living at 5 Adelaide Place in Bristol.
It lists all the family members, including his parents Barnett
and Anna, Isaac's older sister Minnie, and the four month old
The census record lists Barnett Rosenberg’s
place of birth as Russia. We can also see that his name
is written as 'Barned', whereas on the birth certificate
it was written as 'Barnard'. It is likely that Barnett
spoke his name, and the spelling was left up to the registrar
or enumerator. When carrying out your own
family history research, remember that spellings were far more flexible
in past times.
