Howdenshire History

1828 census of Goole, Yorkshire

In 1828 the Aire and Calder Navigation Company who had built and owned most of 'New Goole' took a census of the families living in their new town. It was probably made by James Hewitt Hodson, the company agent, who appears first on the list. The head of the household was listed as well as the numbers of males and females in the household. In some cases the address was given and sometimes the occupation. 1033 people lived then in New Goole. A census of Old Goole was made in 1827 but we only know from it that 584 people were then living there.

I have further information on some of these names and families - please contact me and I will be happy to share details.
