I have extracted all the HORROCKS from the USA and British Census.
Most interesting is when you do a statistical analysis of these
listings. The census details are broken down as:
Details - Each census year includes
- The different ways the HORROCKS name has
- The birthplaces for each person
- The state (USA) or county (British) that
each person lived

- The ages of those listed
- The most popular first names
The census Summaries combine the census
details shown in the details and show them side by side in table
format. These include:
- Birth Locations
- How many HORROCKS were in each county or
- How many HORROCKS were in each city
- Their ages
