However, the 1841 census was the earliest to be of use when the Old Age Pensions were introduced in 1908, and copies of the household returns from 1851 were sometimes used as proof of age. The forms detailing the results of the searches have survived and are available PRONI Reference Number T.550. There are also some individual returns in MIC 15A.
