Freeport, Maine, in the 1820 Census

Freeport, Maine, in Cumberland County, in the 1820 Federal Census

Enumerator: Robert D. Dunning

Enumerated population of Freeport in the 1820 Census: 2177 and on the recap

Enumeration of Freeport consists of all or parts of Sheets 188-271; use the arrow at top left of each image to page forward.

Note: The enumerator made an effort to list people by the first letter of their surnames, but the sheets, as numbered, show the list in reverse alphabetical order, requiring a bit more effort to find a particular head of household. The individual sheets are in alphabetical order by first letter of surname, but series of sheets go backwards.

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.

Boundary changes to Freeport since 1820:

  • land set off to Brunswick in 1833, 1839 and 1850

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. And in the case of Freeport, the sheets as numbered show the list more or less backwards, alphabetically.

  • 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.
