Scarborough, Maine, in the 1820 Census

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

Note: the true Scarborough, Maine, not the one that some online indexes show as Scarborough, Hancock County, Maine - resulting from a misreading of Gouldsbough.

Enumerated population of Scarborough in the 1820 Census: possibly 2232

Enumerator: Asa Heath - on bottom half of image

Enumeration of Scarborough consists of all or parts of Sheets 344-358; 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 Scarborough since 1820:

  • land set off to Saco in 1841
  • land set off to Gorham in 1864
  • Stratton Island and Bluff Island set off to what is now Old Orchard Beach; year or years not known

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.
