How to report a possible transcription error

These transcriptions may contain human errors.
As always, confirm these, as you would any other source material.

Fishing Rooms
Return of the Number of Houses, Inhabitants, etc

Note: Due to the handwritten nature of the original documents, some errors have probably occured while transcribing the census return on this, or other 1800-01 census return pages.  I have tried to make the listings below as close as possible to the original document.  Please notify me if you believe I have made an error in my interpretation of the original handwriting.

Letters written inside brackets '(?)' means that those letters were written in superscript beside the word it follows.
