Treasure Chest Thursday - 1841 English Census Record for John Rich Family

It's Treasure Chest Thursday - time to share an artifact or a document image from my collection of ancestral stuff.

The treasure today is the 1841 English Census record for the John Rich family in Hilperton, Wiltshire.

The information for the John Rich family on this census record is:

*  Parish or township of:  Hilperton
*  Place: Hilperton

*  Houses: Uninhabited or Building:  [blank]
*  Inhabited: 1

*  Names of each Person who abode therein the preceding Night:

*  Age and Sex:
*  Profession, Trade, Employment or of Independent Means:
*  Where Born:

**  Jno Rich - 47, Male, Weaver, Wiltshire

**  Rebecka Rich - 55, Female, Wiltshire
**  Jessey Rich - 18, Male, Wiltshire
**  Elizabeth Rich - 16, Female, Wiltshire
**  Hanah Rich - 15, Female, Wiltshire
**  William Rich - 10, Male, Wiltshire
**  Samuel rich - 7, Male, Wiltshire

I first obtained this record from a Family History Library microfilm, so the source citation I have is:

1841 Census of England, Enumeration Schedule; Wiltshire, Hilperton [parish], Folio 21 recto, lines 22-25 on page 1, lines 1-3 on page 2, Jno Rich household; Public Record Office HO 107/1182/2, Family History Library, Salt Lake City, Utah; FHL BRITISH microfilm 464,200.

John and Rebecca (Hill) Rich are my third great-grandparents.  Their daughter, Hannah Rich (1824-1911) married James Richman (1821-1912) in 1845 in Hilperton, Wiltshire, England.
