Population Register 1830
A census was held in 1830 within the municipalty of Grez-Doiceau. With the results a population register was created. All families where written down in the register, grouped by "section" (a cadastrial subdivision of each municipality). The next years most of the population mouvements where penciled in.
Those sections and their corresponding folios (folio = the backside of a page and the frontside of the next) where in 1830:
- Grez (main village) (folio001 until 029),
- Centry (folio030 until 036),
- Doiceau (folio037 until 047),
- Gastuche (folio048 until 052),
- Morsaint (with Royenne and Bayarmon) (folio053 until 058),
- Heze (folio059 until 075)
