Volume XI: Religion in Hertfordshire 1847-51

The aim of both the 1851 Religious Census and William Upton's 1847 Survey was to ascertain the quantity of accommodation for worship and what proportion of the population attended Church or Chapel. Additionally, the Survey evaluated the quality of preaching in each community. Comments from the clergy and officers cover a multitude of subjects including finance, pews, weather and illness.
