Canadian Census Mapping Commenced

The 1911 Canada Census was taken between 1911 and 1912, at which time the total population count of Canada was around 7.2 million. Of those, approximately 150 were members of the ‘Anstey’, Ansty’, ‘Anstee’ and ‘Anstie’ family, representing about 1 in 48,000 people living there.

However it is important to note that Newfoundland (including Twillingate) was not formally part of Canada until 1949, so in fact the total number of Ansteys in ‘modern day’ Canada (including Newfoundland) in 1911 was around 400, consisting of those listed in the 1911 Canada Census plus another approximately 250 Ansteys living in Newfoundland in 1911.

We are currently mapping each and every one of these to their respective sub-branches – check it out on the Canada Ansteys page.
