All figures for "English" include Wales and Scotland.

All figures for "Ireland" include Northern Ireland, Free Irish Republic and Catholic Ireland

All figures for "Austria" include Yugoslavia, Austro-Hungraian and Slovenian

Figures for Italy are difficult since some "Italian" families report themselves as Swiss or French or Italian depending on the census. One census shows two brothers (Vagneurs) and one reports their country of origin as Switzerland and the other as Italy.
