Census returns for people born in Hastingleigh, and living OUTSIDE of the Parish.
(includes variant spellings Hastingleigh / Hastingley / Hastingly / Hastinleigh / Hastenleigh / Hastenley/ Hastenly)
Due to there not being any places of birth recorded on the 1841 census, just the County, there is no out-census for 1841.
Pre-census & census population counts for Hastingleigh Parish (bear in mind boundary changes over the years affect the figures.)
1921 census due to be released in 2022
1931 census destroyed by fire in WW2
1939 register * [see below as it has now been partially released]
1941 no census due to WW2
1951 census due out in 2052
* In 1939 there was a thorough population count, which enabled the issuing of an ID card to everyone. This list in turn
provided the basis for ration cards during and after the war. Each individual was given an ID number, which subsequently
became their NHS number.
For this reason, for anyone who is still alive, or who died overseas, their details have been redacted from view, until proof of death
is submitted to the National Archives by means of an official death certificate. It is due to this that several names have been redacted
and cannot be transcribed into the 1939 list on this website. Those whose details are now disclosed, have been listed.
Because some properties are still redacted - and some were registered in Wye Parish, the population total of 215+ is the approximate
figure for Hastingleigh Parish in 1939.
