Rum Census

KCFA member Alexander Wood wrote an article in the KCFA Newsletter no 11 of December 2000 entitled ‘Population of the Isle of Rum between 1841 and 1891‘ which is reproduced here with his permission.

KCFA secretary Catherine Duckworth has transcribed the Rum Census for 1901 and the Rum census for 1911 which are reproduced here with her permission. To consult the latter more easily it is suggested that you print it out as the wealth of information in this census means that the data for each person carries over to a second page.

If anyone can supply any further information about any Rum ancestors, particularly those who may have served in World War One, please contact Catherine Duckworth by email at
