Township 8, Oxford County, Maine, in the 1820 Census - Byron, Maine

Township No. 8 Oxford County, Maine, in the 1820 Census - now Byron, Maine

Township 8, Abbot's Purchase [T8 AP]; incorporated as Byron in 1833.

[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.]

In the words of Enumerator Joseph H. Wardwell in the enumeration of Township 3, Second Range, before this one: "Township No. 3 - 2d Range, Lying North from No. 8".

The area lying north of Byron coincides with Rangeley Plantation and Rangeley, both formed from townships that included Township 3, Second Range.  Rangeley Plantation and Rangeley were part of the Bingham Kennebec Purchase, not the Abbot Purchase, and are both in Franklin County, since 1838.

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 Township No. 8 in the 1820 Census:  155 inhabitants

Enumerator: Joseph H. Wardwell

The enumeration of Township No. 3, 2nd Range, appears on Sheet 126 and part of Sheet 127.
