    E.g.: Harrold Hall, Bedfordshire, demolished in 1861, had the following three women listed on its 1841 census form:

    The 1841 census gives an idea of the numbers of staff employed at the Hall – the tenant and his wife were away, but their daughter was present:

    Elizabeth Rodel – female – Governess – not born in Bedfordshire
    Elizabeth Magenis – female – 12 – not born in Bedfordshire
    Jessy Roach – female – 45 – F[emale] S[ervant] – born in Scotland, Ireland or foreign parts
