Series Information
(Census, Index)

Series Description
Electronic index to the Censuses of 1776 and 1778, derived from a card index, identified as Index 46 and prepared by Patricia Ridgway, an Archives' volunteer. The Census of 1776 was taken to gain accurate population data for apportioning the costs of fighting the British, and the Census of 1778 was compiled to determine who had not subscribed to the state-mandated oath of fidelity. Entries give name, county, hundred or parish, and citation. Free blacks are separately identified. Provides references to the following records: Council of Safety (Census of 1776) in series S961, Caroline County Court (Land Records) in series C523 and on film in series CM247, Charles County Court (Census of 1778) in series C654 and on film in series CM1235, and Queen Anne's County Court (Census of 1778) in series C1365.
