Somerset County, Maine, in the 1820 Census

Somerset County, Maine in the 1820 Census.

If you don't see a town you expect to see in the list of towns below, check to see if the town was incorporated later than 1820 and was known then by another name; or if the town changed its name after incorporation; or if it's now located in another County.

Note: until the 1850 Census, enumerators listed names of heads of households only.

Click on the town name for more information, including links to the original documents and alphabetical lists of heads of households.

Note: some of the towns listed below are now in other Maine counties, as noted.  The current counties of the Plantations and Township will require more research.
