1841 Census of
Shipham, Somerset, England
Surname: Hares

This page provides a table of all individuals with the surname Hares found in the 1841 census of Shipham, Somerset, England. The name Hares has long been associated with the parish and is frequently found in the parish records of St. Leonard's beginning in the mid 18th century. Shipham was a relatively small parish in 1841 with only 707 inhabitants who were involved in a variety of occupations including farming and lead mining. Of the 707 listed individuals, some 93 were named Hares, for about 13% of the total population of the parish. All of the Hares living in Shipham in 1841 state that they were born in the county, which is another testament to the family's long association with Somerset.

Oddly, there are no street or house names provided by the returns, the only indication of such being the cryptic listing of "Rectory House" on the very first page. Another thing that stands out is that in most instances only the head of the household is shown as having an occupation, while boys and men as old as 15 or even 20 have no occupation listed. Given the times and the nature of the community, I can only conclude that the absence of place names and occupations for men and older boys are likely omissions on the part of the enumerator.
