To give some idea of progress in how much of the census information and civil birth/marriage/death registration we have identified, here are the statistics and some comments on them. (Dated June 2012)

Census records are more tricky to identify the correct spelling of the name, hence there are more records for some years which I expect not to be Gottses. I have focused on 1851 and 1881 censuses as they give the span of the family and were the early ones available. The 1901 census provided the next generations, however Ancestry have only recently released the 1911 full detail, which is why that figure is low.

BMD records were extracted directly from the books in St Catherines House as was (Now in PRO), so I know the numbers are fairly close.  Births and marriages have been done particularly to build the trees and correlation against the census has helped significantly. I have looked at deaths less often, though the number of records seems low (70% more people being born than dying doesn’t seem to stack up with the National figures).

I have numbered every person taking the name Gotts in the trees I have built in order to reduce the confusion between people with the same name. These are contained in 26 main trees, with some trees being large.
