Census Sunday - Following Hudson Little with Census & Other Documents

 Hudson Little my Great Grand Uncle on my Mothers Fathers side continues.............  

I did locate the United Kingdom Census for 1841- 1851 & 1861. I only added the basic information for the 1841 because Hudson was not born yet. But I wanted to see where the family was living 10 years prior and it looks different than the 1851 when Hudson first appeared.

HUDSON LITTLE - 21- abt 1840; single; farm servant; male; B: Basenthwaite, Cumberland, England [in obituary it said he left home after thrashing and worked on his own for about 5 years- I think he aged a couple of years - maybe he told them he was 21 or maybe who every gave the information didn't really know or thought he was 21- I am certain this is my guy]

New Zealand has never published censuses preferring to keep them for statistical purposes only

So I have tracked Hudson through all the census available........ and since New Zealand has not published their census I have a New Zealand Electoral Rolls documented from 1874 to 1911. I also have him listed in the New Zealand Cities Directory from 1898 to 1933. So I am comfortable knowing where he was almost every year of his life ......... Dec 1 when I started on this look at Hudson Little I did do a timeline first
