Gloucester County, Virginia 1810 Census


Gloucester County, Virginia 1810 Census.

John Vogt.

This is the first surviving census for Gloucester, since both the 1790 and 1800 censuses have been lost. The transcription is in its original rough alpha order of the original document for easy reference. Gloucester was one of the first settlements outside of Jamestown in the seventeenth century and it has been the scene of numerous historic events. The very high proportion of slaves to the overall total illustrates the plantation society which existed in the area by the beginning of the nineteenth century. This transcription is carefully executed and corrects numerous errors which have crept into the internet databases.
