1851 Census

The following population distribution figures and maps are based on the information obtained from the Ancestry.co.uk website. Numbers are for the county where they are resident at the time of the 1851 census. It should be noted that the census returns of several localities in the area of Manchester were damaged by water during storage. It is therefore very likely that the total number of Irlams in Lancashire in particular is understated.

It is remarkable how few had migrated outside of the home counties of Lancashire and Cheshire by 1851 (compared to 1881). It is also noteworthy that the clear majority of those who used the variant EARLAM are in Cheshire but in Lancashire the variant IRLAM is dominant. This appears to be all the Earlam variants that continued into the 'modern' era. However, there is a further variant in the 1881 census that does not occur in the 1851 census: MC IRLAM (born in Ireland and resident in Dumbartonshire in Scotland).
