St. George, Maine, in the 1820 Census - then in Lincoln County; as of 1860 in Knox County

St. George, Maine, in the 1820 Census - then in Lincoln County; as of 1860 in Knox County.

See three lists of the names of heads of households farther below.  Why three lists?
  • List 1 - heads of households on sheets with "St. George" in the margin
  • List 2 - heads of households on a half sheet in the midst of the St. George enumeration with "Warren" written in the margin.  Who knows what the enumerator intended - but I've put this list here and on the Warren page as well.
  • List 3 - heads of households living on the islands within the borders of St. George.  Sadly, the enumerator did not list the islands' names and heads of households separately, but grouped them all together, with "Islands belonging to St. George" in the margin.

Boundary changes since 1820: land set off to South Thomaston in 1865

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.

Enumerated population of St. George in the 1820 Census: 1325 inhabitants.

Enumerator: Thurston Whiting

The enumeration of St. George appears on Sheets 252-257; use the arrow at top left of each image to page forward.

This particular enumerator's handwriting, his use of abbreviations and the smears on his sheets have made indexing his enumerations particularly difficult.  Please look over the total list to be sure you haven't missed the person you're seeking.

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