Buckingham County, Virginia 1810 Census


This is the first surviving census for Buckingham, since both the 1790 and 1800 censuses have been lost. A complete index is included for easy access. Buckingham was an important Southside county with a heavy slave population, and the census record covers 1,303 households. The manuscript itself is in poor condition, with more than one-third of the pages which are very difficult to decipher. However, by careful comparison, every name in the document has been recovered. This document should be a complement to the fine work of Roger Ward (below) on land taxes in the county.
