An unofficial census of the village of Ardleigh, taken by the vicar in 1796, five years before the first official census, and nearly half a century before the first census to list everyone by name.
The Rev John Kelly personally went round the parish visiting each household and recording the names, ages, and 'qualities' of the inhabitants. Concerned that the French might invade he also tallied up the number of males between 15 and 60 who were capable of bearing arms.
