Re: Census: Two places at once?

There have been rule changes.

For the UK 1841-1901 the enumeration was for person who slept at the address on census night.

This is one reason you will find unnamed persons in the census, .e.g. a homeowner may have known that vagrants, travellers, etc. were sleeping in an out building but may not have known their names.
