  1. Occupation in census . . . .”concubine”

    Genealogists and researchers will often find odd or unusual occupations within census returns.    One of our searchers this week came across a more unusual occupation when investigating the 1861 census.  Sarah Atkinson of Hull is shown as a “concubine”.  There is no partner present in the household, although there are two children.  She was clearly honest with the census enumerator, which is certainly less usual!
