Accomack County, Virginia 1810 Census


This is the first surviving census for Accomack, since both the 1790 and 1800 censuses have been lost. The transcription is in the order in which the enumerator took his census. Thus, neighbors appear together and this will assist the genealogist. Accomack was a rich agricultural area consisting of the northern portion of the peninsula east of the Chesapeake Bay. It had an early settlement and a rich history. It is also noted for the large number of free African-Americans resident there in the beginning of the nineteenth century. This and other 1810 censuses are transcribed by the author from the original images, and while many of Virginia's censuses are available online, they oftentimes are replete with misreadings. Caveat emptor!
