Raymond, Maine, in the 1820 Census

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

Enumerated population of Raymond in the 1820 Census: 1388

Enumerator: Stephen Swett

Enumeration of Raymond consists of all or parts of Sheets 29-45; 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 since 1820:

  • land set off to Naples but later returned
  • land set off to form Casco in 1841, with an additional piece set off to Casco in 1842
  • piece of unincorporated land annexed in 1835
  • part of "Eighty Rod Strip" annexed in 1838
  • part of a gore between Raymond and Gray annexed in 1839
  • Gray surplus and gore on Raymond Cape annexed in 1859
  • part of Standish annexed in 1869

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.
