Households in Coldingham Shore, 1851

The 1851 Census for Scotland was taken on the night of 30 March 1851. This list includes all households listed in “the fishing village of Coldingham Shore”, which are on pages 11 to 19 of the census. I have purchased scans of pages 10 to 15 to date.

Note that in Ancestry all these listings have the address Milldown, but this is an error. They had continued filling in the last address given on page 10 of the census, which was the family of James Brown, a farmer in Milldown.

Households are in alphabetical order by head of household’s name. I have corrected any obvious errors (e.g. spelling inconsisitencies such as Cormick and Cormack, William abbreviated to Willm etc). The relationships shown relate to the head of the household.

Occupations (highlighted in bold) include:

  • 33 fishermen and one retired fisherman (all men)
  • 12 house servants (all women)
  • 4 coopers (all men)
  • 1 fish curer and 1 retired fish curer (both men)
  • 1 net mender (a woman)
