A census of population in Scotland has been held every 10 years since 1801 with the exception of 1941 due to the WW2.
Parish schoolmasters carried out the census until 1831, enumerators were asked to provide statistical returns for the 1801 to 1831 censuses but some kept lists of householders along with other details notably occupations. Most of the surviving pre-1841 census entries are found in kirk session records with a few in Old Parish Registers.
Located on the River Esk, Dalkeith is a former market town in Midlothian, Scotland.
In 1401, it was granted a burgh of barony and then in 1540 a burgh of regality. Originally under the control of the powerful Earls of Morton, the estate of Dalkeith was eventually purchased by the Buccleuch family in the mid-seventeenth century.
In 1831 the opening of the Edinburgh and Dalkeith Railway was a significant development, it enabled the transportation of farm produce and minerals from the local area and, allowed producers to take advantage of larger and more distant markets. At its peak, Dalkeith was the most important grain market town in Scotland.
