Here we are presenting statistics for a historical unit, which may have changed its boundaries significantly during the period covered.

Preferred Name:
KENT
Unit Type:
Poor Law/Registration County
Date created:
1851
Date abolished:
1930
Unit ID:
10134729
Authorities:
F. Youngs, Local Administrative Units: Southern England (London: Royal Historical Society, 1979), p. 255.

Notes:

From 1851 onwards, for statistical purposes we define the Registration County of Kent to exclude those Registration Districts listed in census and vital registration reports as being within "the Metropolis", i.e. London. However, the reports of the Poor Law Board up to 1st January 1857 do not distinguish London, so the Kent data include those areas.
