The Arnolds in Census returns for Nuneaton (1841)

and other relatives in Nuneation and Longford (1851, 1861, 1871, 1881

Most of the individuals in the 1841 Census can be traced back further to a relatively few families, some of which are definately linked to mine. There were no Arnolds in Nuneaton before 1700 so it is likely that they are all related from one family which settled there in the early 1700's

Arnolds can be found throughout Warwickshire and seem to cluster around the A5 Watling street border with Leicestershire. This is where the earliest mention of Arnolds is found in medieval documents. This was the historic boundary between Danelaw and the Saxons in even earlier times.

It is possible that the ancestors of the Arnolds came over with the invasions from Denmark as the name is still found there today and has other European variants.
