Censor (ancient Rome) information - Search.com (4369 words)
In 442 BC, no consuls were elected, but rather military tribunes with consular power were appointed in their stead; the plebeians were attempting to attain higher magistracies (since only patricians could be consuls, while some military tribunes were plebeians).
To stop the plebeians from possibly gaining control of the census, the patricians removed the consuls' -and consequently their representatives, the tribunes- right to take the census, and entrusted it to two magistrates, called censores (English censors), who were to be chosen exclusively from the patricians in Rome.
Twelve years afterwards in 339 BC, one of the Publilian laws required that one censor had to be a plebeian (Livy viii.12).
