Danville, Maine, in the 1820 Census - now part of Auburn, Maine, in Androscoggin County

Danville, Maine, in Cumberland County, in the 1820 Federal Census - now part of Auburn, Maine, in Androscoggin County

Enumerated population of Danville in the 1820 Census: 1083

Enumerator: Josiah Dunn, Jr. of Poland, Maine

Enumeration of consists of all or parts of Sheets 327-337; use the arrow at top left of each image to page forward.

Boundary changes to Danville since 1820:

  • land set off to Durham in 1821 and 1823
  • land annexed from Poland in 1852
  • land set off to Auburn in 1859 and the rest of Danville annexed to Auburn in 1867

Note: the 1820 Federal Census lists the names of heads of households only; people in a household are tracked by age range and gender to determine the total population.

See the
list of heads of households at the end of this post.

Note: Spelling of the names of heads of households has been left as it appears in the enumerator’s hand; in some cases, for clarity, an optional spelling has been added. Your corrections and additional information are requested; please comment for the benefit of fellow researchers.

For the following reasons, be prepared to search the entire list for the object of your search:

  • Many people were not sure of the spelling of their names

  • Name spelling may have evolved throughout the person’s life

  • The enumerator may not have heard the person correctly

  • The enumerator may have interviewed someone not certain of the name of the head of household or how it was spelled

  • The enumerator may have used phonetic spellings.

  • Some enumerators grouped heads of households together by the first letter of their surname, giving an additional clue on a surname difficult to read.  Note: lists by first letter of surname are not alphabetical within that letter.

  • Some enumerators apparently grouped the names by walking through neighborhoods; in these cases, the first letter of the surname may sometimes be in error, but the information on neighboring households is valuable.

Not in alphabetical order - read through the entire list or "find in page".
