This early Scottish census listed the names of each of the head of the household and within each family unit the number of parents, children, lodgers, and servants. Then each category was separated into male and female.

Lodgers may have been a person paying to stay at the house or a visiting family member. Also, the servants were not always domestic servants, but may have been apprentices.
