1891 Census- sent in by Ann Hupert Anne Hupert wrote:
Last year, I went thru part of the 1891 census of Canongate, Edinburgh,
looking for the family of William Renton & Janet Jardine.
The census fills 4 rolls of microfilm; I found the family I was looking for near the end of the second roll.
Consequently, I never looked at the third or fourth rolls.
But I did write down all of the Rentons that I found on the first two rolls.
Here they are:
