Cox/Cock Extracts from the 1851 Census for Somerset

Somerset is one of the counties comprising the South West area of England. It was included in the Kingdom of Wessex and in earlier times was mostly inundated by the sea as far inland as Glastonbury. This watery expanse contained many islands; small and large where communities lived, and with fishing as their main source of food they became known as The Lake Dwellers of Somerset. Further reading on Somerset's early history may be seen in "The Lake-Villages of Somerset" by Arthur Bulleid, LRCP., FSA - first printed in 1924 and revised in 1958. The names Babcock, Badcock, Cockburn, Cockeram, Cockerman, Cockerton, Cocking, Cockman, Coxhead, Coxson, Hancock[s], Handcock, Hiscock, Hiscox, Hitchcock, Hytchcock, Silcock, Silcox, Pocock, Wilcock[s], Wilcox and Woolcock  are also to be found, mostly in the Bath & Bristol areas.

These extracts were taken from the transcriptions of Gordon B Beavington and Phil Clements from the PRO Microfiche. The population of each place is given and where available, the names of other places, streets and/or areas. Where persons are living with families, the whole family has also been included. All words have been copied as transcribed from the original so what may seem to be spelling mistakes may not be. In some instances the enumerator uses only initials.

From "A Chronological History of Somerset" by W.G. Willis Watson, F.R.Hist.S published in 1925, it is recorded that the population of Somerset was 443,916 increasing to 463,412 persons in 1871 at the time of the censuses.
