Thomaston, Maine, in the 1820 Census - then in Lincoln County; as of 1860 in Knox County

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

Some of the heads of households in Thomaston had notations indicating they were living on islands, but those islands were not named specifically.  See the list farther below.

Boundary changes since 1820:
  • part of Warren annexed in 1864
  • land set off in 1848 to form East Thomaston (name changed to Rockland in 1850) and South Thomaston
  • additional land set off to East Thomaston (Rockland, as of 1850) in 1849, and some of Rockland annexed in 1852
  • parts of Cushing annexed in 1891 and 1909

See an alphabetical list of the heads of households farther below.   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 Thomaston in the 1820 Census: 2651 inhabitants.

Enumerator: Thurston Whiting

The enumeration of Thomaston appears on Sheets 257-265; 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.
