Northumberland County, Virginia 1810 Census


Northumberland County, Virginia 1810 Census. 

John Vogt. 2009. 

Contains illustrations, maps, arranged in the original rough alphabetic form used by the enumerator. In addition, in an unusual move, the enumerator chose to require three additional pieces of information from the households: 1)the number of gallons of brandy produced [annually?]; 2)the number of looms in the household; and finally, 3)yards of cloth woven by the household [presumably annually]. This information reveals a great deal about the cottage industry of this Chesapeake community and its relations with port factors and traders.
