In 1810 the county alone [not including the borough of Norfolk, which was enumerated separately] possessed more than 1,500 families with a total population exceeding 16,000, This document should be a fine complement to the abstract of Roger Ward (below) on land taxes in the county. When compared one to another, these two sources can be utilized to find the general residence area of many of the landowning families within the census.
