Family roll calls



This section includes people with the Howcutt or Howcott surname living in England, Wales and Scotland in the years shown. 

Comprehensive registration of births, marriages and deaths in England and Wales started on 1 July 1837. Full records of these events do not exist before that date, so the lists of Howcutts for before then are probably not all complete or entirely accurate. For instance, they may include people who had already died or changed their name on marriage and may leave out some brides who had already acquired the Howcutt surname.

The lists for the 1841 to 1911 census returns have been taken from scanned images of the enumerator's returns. The individuals who appeared (or who seem to be missing from the census) have been identified by analysing all Howcutt births, marriages and deaths registered since 1837, along with records of christenings, marriages and burials for earlier years. The census indexes compiled by have revealed the location of the vast majority of Howcutts who should appear in those censuses.

Female Howcutts who changed their surname on marriage before 1911 have also been sought in the census records under their new surnames. It has been more difficult to locate these individuals, as the new surnames are often relatively common. 

First christian names are shown in their usual modern form so, for instance, abbreviations used in census returns are spelled out in full. Second christian names are only shown if they appear in the relevant census and are left as initials if that is how they were written there. Nicknames used in the relevant record are shown enclosed by inverted commas.

The ages shown in the census years are as they appear in the original record and so not always accurate. Ages shown in the earlier lists may also be inaccurate. The letter "m" after an age means "months".
