1841 and 1851 census fragments : All Surviving Galway entries
- brought to you through the efforts of Cathy O'Neill
In 1908 the Old Age pension was introduced in Ireland,
for those aged 70 and over.
Would-be claimants, born about 1840, but unable to provide proof of age because of the lack of records pre-1864, could apply to the Public Records Office for a search of the relevant census.
Completed claim forms sometimes contained full details of the original census entry.
Almost all the 19th century censuses were destroyed, so these fragments are invaluable.
