Kaighins in Census Records


The below pages contain census records where Kaighins can be found.  Census data of approximately 500

individuals in 142 Kaighin families was captured in publicly available census records between 1841 and 1930. 

There are 481 census images contained within.  These pages are indexed by family grouping and where known,

each family is hyperlinked to their parent and children families.  In many instances it is possible to trace up to five

generations of one family by clicking on the parent or child families links.


The images come from the following censuses, except for the 1841 IOM census.  The 1841 census data is taken from

an “An Edited Alphabetical Index to the Census of 1841 for the Isle of Man 2nd Edition” provided with permission by

Brian Lawson and contains no images.  The 1890 US census is absent due to a fire in the early part of the 20th

century which destroyed most of those census records.

Australia or elsewhere outside the three countries listed above.  As well, the New Jersey branch of Kaighns is not

included in this body of data.


To search for a Kaighin ancestor, use the following pages which are sorted alphabetically by first name, then click on

the link or links on the right side.  This will take you to that family’s census data page.  On each family census data

page, links can be found on the right side that will take you directly to the census image for that family and year.  As

a convenience, skeleton data (birth/christening, marriage, death, parents and spouses) for each family has been

included on each family census data page.  If you have any problems trying to find or identify your Kaighin ancestors,

please feel free to email the editor for assistance.
