Note: the 1820 Census lists the names of heads of households only, with a tally of everyone in each household by age range and gender.
The enumerated total population for Newberg in 1820 was 328.
The enumeration of Newberg consists of three sheets, two of which are erroneously indexed in some sources online as Hampden (with the people on those sheets shown as residents of Hampden, rather than Newburgh).
- Sheet 71 - indexed in some places online as Hampden but should be indexed as Newberg
- Sheet 72 - indexed in some places online as Hampden but should be indexed as Newberg
- Sheet 73 - marked Newburg by the enumerator, but as a reader has pointed out, these people lived in Brewer
Note: The list of heads of households below contains several cases of what appears to be phonetic spelling and misspelling; you may need to check the entire list. Depending on what indexing site you use, some of these people will be shown as residents of Hampden, Maine.
If you notice errors or if you have information to share on any of the people listed below, please leave a comment.
Especially note those people listed on Sheet 73, marked with an asterisk, who may have instead been residents of Brewer, Maine.

* These heads of households appear on page 73 marked as Newburg, but they are actually residents of Brewer, Maine.
Sheet 73 is not Newburgh, Penobscot County. Many individuals on sheets 71 & 72 appear in 1810 or 1830, as well as land records. None of the individuals on sheet 73 are found elsewhere in Newburgh records.ReplyDelete
Will take a look. Thanks for the heads up.Delete
OMGoodness, you have opened a can of worms! I was trying to correct indexing errors, but you may have exposed a glaring ENUMERATOR error... Page 73 has Newburg written in the margin, but, on your heads up, I searched a few of the names on that page, and they sound as though they should be enumerated under BREWER, not Newburg. Is that your belief as well? Yikes!Delete
