Peru, Maine - Plantation 1 - in the 1820 Census

Peru, Maine, in the 1820 Census - would be incorporated in 1821, but the name was apparently being used in 1820 - although the enumerator, Joseph H. Wardwell, spelled it "Perue or No.1".

Click here to to return to the main page for the 1820 Census in Maine, which has links to the 9 Maine Counties then in existence and, from there, to the individual Towns of the County chosen.

Note: the 1820 Census lists the names of heads of households only; see the original sheets for a tally of everyone in each household by age range and gender.

Changes since 1820:
  • land set off to Rumford in 1825
  • part of Canton annexed in 1859
  • land set off Rumford in 1895
  • most of Franklin Plantation annexed in 1899; remainder of Franklin Plantation annexed by Rumford

Enumerated population of Plantation 1, Peru, in the 1820 Census:  343 inhabitants

Enumerator: Joseph H. Wardwell

The enumeration of Rumford consists of Sheets 118-121; use the arrow at top left to page forward.

The enumerator used phonetic spellings; be prepared to check over the entire list for the person you're researching, as different spellings may have affected alphabetization.
