19th Century Census for Northumberland County, Ontario
Searching for an ancestor? Besides these records, you should also examine the Hamilton township census and assessment records with the pay lists and correspondence of the Northumberland militia. Plus, you should examine the other records of local history in the index.
Presently, the census project consists of selected years for Hamilton and Haldimand townships. Additional years and townships will be added over time. This project must acknowledge its debt to the Cobourg Library Staff and Percy Climo. Percy spent countless hours interpreting the handwriting in the census and making a more legible copy. Like any material on this site, you may use it and copy it for personal or educational use. Use for profit is forbidden.
We are lucky to have a new addition to this project, Dave Hargreave. Dave has very kindly interpreted, typed and prepared the census and assessment records for Haldimand township. He has also agreed to be a contact for these records. He can be reached at Dave Hargreave <email@example.com> . If you do contact Dave, thank him profusely as the Haldimand records are the worst I've ever seen for illegibility and damage...
Note, the spelling of names vary from census to census (of the same person). If you are looking for a particular surname please look under several different possibilities (e.g. my own ancestors were spelled Robbins, Robyns, and Robins). We will try to go with the most consistent spelling. Finally, the census is tied to land. A person will appear each time they own land so some individuals have multiple entries (especially in the 1848 census) under land but they will show up under the age categories only once. While Dave is the better contact, you may also reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Note: I have not bothered linking each record to the next and previous record yet as more records need to be added within this list. Presently use the "back" button to return to this page after viewing each record.
