Brunswick, Maine, in the 1820 Census

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

Enumerator: Robert D. Dunning

Enumerated population of Brunswick in the 1820 Census: 2954 - also on the recap sheet

Enumeration of Brunswick consists of all or parts of Sheets 384-408; use the arrow at top left of each image to page forward. Note: there are two sheets numbered 358 - the second one has the information.

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 Brunswick since 1820:

  • parts of Freeport annexed 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.

  • 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.
