Re: 1841 census - advice please

If you start from the 814 described above, and pick out Hector Falconer (who is the first entry on Handa), you can then use the "Next Household" button to call up all the Handa households in order.

Re: Pumphill in Carmunnock

Carmunnock stands at the end of a 600 foot high ridge. Their problem would be more likely related to getting water than to disposing of it.
