Parish History[edit | edit source]

KENNINGTON, Verulam Chapel Walcot Place was originally erected as a Scottish Presbyterian Chapel, but according to Samuel A. Lewis, noted 19th century topographer, was by 1848, an Anglican ecclesiastical chapel and by 1850, one of a total of six which stood within the township district of Kennington. This chapelry, along with four others all lay within the boundary of the ancient parish and union of Lambeth St Mary's, east division of the hundred of Brixton, county of Surrey, 2½ miles (S. S. W.) from London. The five additional episcopal chapels in the district, were namely, Carlisle Chapel, originally an Independent chapel built about 1796 but later became an Anglican chapel in the early to mid-1840's; St Mark's Chapel, Upper Kennington Lane; St. James's, Clayton Place, and Kennington South St Barnabas All Saints. The Independents had two places of worship, and the Baptists and Wesleyans one each. [1]

Census records[edit | edit source]

Census records from 1841 to 1911 are available online. For access, see England Census Records and Indexes Online. Census records from 1841 to 1891 are also available on film through a Family History Center or at the Family History Library.



Prior to the 1911 census the household schedule was destroyed and only the enumerator's schedule survives.

The 1911 census of England and Wales was taken on the night of Sunday 2 April 1911 and in addition to households and institutions such as prisons and workhouses, canal boats merchant ships and naval vessels it attempted to include homeless persons. The schedule was completed by an individual and for the first time both this record and the enumerator's schedule were preserved. Two forms of boycott of the census by women are possible due to frustration at government failure to grant women the universal right to vote in parliamentary and local elections. The schedule either records a protest by failure to complete the form in respect of the women in the household or women are absent due to organization of groups of women staying away from home for the whole night. Research estimates that several thousand women are not found by census search.
