Newport, Maine, in the 1820 Census

Newport, Maine, in Penobscot County, in the 1820 Census.  See the names of heads of households farther below.

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 population of Newport in the 1820 Census is shown as 512.

Note: Some online indexes of the 1820 Census of Newport record only 3 sheets for Newport; however, the following sheet, indexed as all Hermon, Maine, actually contains 8 names and the tally aggregate for Newport.  The enumerator is partially responsible for this oversight, as the town name Newport does not appear in the margin, as was usual practice.

The enumeration of Newport consists of Sheets 90-93, with only Sheets 90-92 visible via this link; use the arrow at the top left of the image to page forward.  Sheet 93, attributed in some online sources as all for Hermon, Maine, contains the last 8 names of heads of households of Newport, plus the town tally aggregate.

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. Because some names can be interpreted in more than one way, they appear on the list below more than once, in the alphabetical order of what they could possibly be.

If you notice errors or if you have information to share on any of the people listed below, please leave a comment.
