Data for analysis of the 1861 census was obtained from several on line sources, which were then compared and combined to obtain a final data set. This process preceeds the anaylsis below:

Sources

Sources and number of Pullum results returned for each
UK Census on Line (UK) 28
Find my Past (FMP) 38
Ancestry (A) 39
Family Search (FS) 9
My own family tree (T) 19

Combining and comparing all these sources gave a of 73 different individuals

In results in all 5 sources 0
All sources except my Tree 5
On Find my Past, Ancestry & Family Search 4
On Find my Past, Ancestry & my Tree 18

None – Family known to be Pullum but recorded as Pullam 5
Total 73

Individuals were included in the analysis unless:
* after examining the original, it was clear the name had been mis-transcribed
* after examining the original and doing further research, it was possible to establish that the name had been mis-recorded in 1861.
Details of individuals not included, were filed separately in case later analysis was needed
Those excluded for these reasons were (31):

Relationships

19 Individuals were already on my own tree
Another family of 5 known already on my tree but recorded as Pullam were found later
After further research:
A family of 5 (including a 15 year old daughter, working as a servant) were added to my tree after further research:
(It was then realised that a family of 7 who had been found during the 1851 census analysis, were the same family.)

So 19 individuals were already on my own tree and 14 were added

These 33 therefore were related to each other and descended from
Joseph PULLUM (1757 – 1846) and his wife Marie/Mary Le Franc /Free (1760 – 1843).1861UKCensus_HouseholdRelationships
