1861 Census in Hampshire, England

There were 74 Henwoods found in Hampshire County, England in 1861. All together there were 1,150 Henwoods listed in England on this new site. Out of the Hampshire Henwoods only 4 were Henry.

The county's name, Hampshire, derives from the city of Southampton, which was formerly called "Hamtun."
Also known as Southamptonshire, Hants.
Former and merged names include:· Hamtonshire

One interesting Henry was born in 1806 in Hampshire and was 55 years old still living there. He was a servant working as a footman. He could very well be the father of our Henry born 1827.

I found our Henry Henwood. He was listed as born 1828 and was 33 years old. He was a carpenter. This is exactly what I had found on www.

I found Henry's son, Henry, who I have found on to be Henry Walter. He was listed as 7 years sold and born in 1854. He was a scholar.

The last Henry found was 45 years old and was born in 1816. He was an agricultural labourer. I wouldn't be surprised if he was related to the other three. Maybe he was a cousin of the older one.
