I refer you to Helen's contribution -below- it is for real , as I my
HURRELLs were Felsted based for yonks and 1851 was the year my great
grandfather left to voyage to Canterbury ,NZ. The absence of this Census
held me up for a long time and I had to get round it circuitously(now
there is a word).
Good luck to all who have relied on the destroyed data.
Incidentally, the other hold up was a modern vicar at Great Leighs , who
would not let the Church registers from his hold for a long time.
