UK Census Records
Excellent family history information is available from the UK census records of 1841 to 1901.
In our research, we have focussed mainly on records of individuals whose surnames were spelled 'Dollin' by the census collector. However, in other census records these same families can be found with the surname spelled differently. For instance: Dollen, Dollyn, Dollan, Dallin, Dollins, Dolling.
Original spellings are sometimes also mistranscribed in the modern indexes of the census records. For instance the name 'Dollin' might be transcribed as 'Doltin'. This complicates the process of piecing together the family connections.
Parish Register Records
We have looked for Dollin records on microfilmed parish registers so far from:
-- St George Church, Dunster, Somerset
Finding family baptisms, marriages and burials on these films is a laborious task and the earlier the record is, the less information is provided.
-- Baptisms in the 1800s may list the child's name, both parents' names, their abode and the father's trade.
Online transcribed indexes exist for some parish registers but most are still only available in microfilm form.
