Poland, Maine, in the 1820 Census; in Androscoggin County as of 1854

Poland, Maine, in Cumberland County, in the 1820 Federal Census; in Androscoggin County as of 1854

Enumerated population of Poland in the 1820 Census: 1353

Enumerator: Josiah Dunn, Jr., of Poland, Maine

Enumeration of Poland consists of all or parts of Sheets 315-325; use the arrow at top left of each image to page forward.

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 Poland since 1820:

  • part of Thompson Pond Plantation annexed in 1830
  • part of "Eighty-Rod Strip" annexed in 1839; (rest of "Eighty-Rod Strip" annexed to Raymond)
  • land set off to Danville in 1852 - (Danville now part of Auburn)
  • land set off to Casco in 1858
  • land set off to Otisfield in 1858
  • land set off to form Mechanic Falls in 1893 (with additional land set off from Minot)

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.
