Possibly incorrect census transcription? FT-1803
« Dato: 07 Nov 2011 - 07:39 »
The Slesvig census of 1803 unfortunately I cannot look at the source document on arkivalieronline as the available documents there are only for the Kingdom of Denmark, not Slesvig or anywhere else.

Source: FT-1803
Name: Christian August Sex: M
Age: 40
Position in household: Hausvater Marital status: Gift
Occupation: Inste ohne Land und Taglöhner
Parish: Dalby District: Nørre Tyrstrup
County: Vejle Place name: Dalby
Household-/family no: 24 Marriage no: 1
Source entry no: b7297 Record no.: 158
Comments: geniesst Unterstützung aus der Armenkasse

Name: Age: Marital status: Occupation in household: Occupation: Birth place:
Christian August 40 Gift Hausvater Inste ohne Land und Taglöhner
Maren 40 Gift dessen Frau
Else Marie 10 Ugift ihre Kinder
Jens 8 Ugift ihre Kinder
Johanne 8 Ugift ihre Kinder
Anne Christine 2 Ugift ihre Kinder

Now there is no doubt this is my ancestor's family.  There is him, his wife and his four children, but almost everything else is wrong.  They were both 46 or so in 1803, not 40, Else Maria was 11 or 12, Jens was 10, Johanna was 7 and Anne Christine was 1.  And there are no surnames at all, August is actually Christian's middle name.  The ages I guess maybe the census was taken later perhaps, but it should probably look more like this:

Name: Age: Marital status: Occupation in household: Occupation: Birth place:
Christian August Albrechtsen 46 Gift Hausvater Inste ohne Land und Taglöhner
Maren Jensdatter 46 Gift dessen Frau
Else Marie Christiansdatter 11 Ugift ihre Kinder
Jens Christiansen 10 Ugift ihre Kinder
Johanne Christiansdatter 8 Ugift ihre Kinder
Anne Christine Christiansdatter 2 Ugift ihre Kinder

It's entirely possible that the transcriber wrote this down perfectly and it was rather the census taker who wrote this all down incorrectly.  My ancestor was quite likely illiterate and I wouldn't be surpised if he was rather newly freed from serfdom.

You might want to try one of the local LDS Family History centers and look up the film for the 1803 Census of that area and order it.
