Fairfax County, Virginia 1810 Census


This is the first surviving census for Fairfax, since both the 1790 and 1800 censuses have been lost. The transcription is in the rough alpha order of the original document for easy reference. Fairfax was an important and populous county in the Northern Neck and adjacent to the nation's capital. It rural nature persisted well into the nineteenth century, and it was the home of greats from the Revolution such as George Washington and George Mason.

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!
