| 1852 Census |
The townships of Walsingham, Charlotteville, Townsend and Middleton, and the Town of Simcoe were transcribed by Robert Mutrie. The townships of Woodhouse, Windham, and Houghton were transcribed by William R. Yeager, then curator of the Norfolk Historical Society, which permitted the extraction of heads of households and "strays" for this Index. (A "stray" is an individual who appears living alone or with people of a different surname.)
Robert Mutrie has generously donated this Index and his 1852 Census township transcriptions to this web site.
The full Index is now online. It lists only head of households and strays, but may eventually link to details about each family member living in Charlotteville, Middleton, Townsend, Walsingham, and the town of Simcoe. Houghton, Windham and Woodhouse township details will not be available online. Contact the Norfolk Historical Society for that information.
Each index entry includes surname, given name, the census page number where that name was found, and the town or township name. To search for a particular name, just select the first letter of the surname above. If the name appears in blue in the index, clicking on it will take you to details about that individual and cohabitants.
Difficult to read entries appear here surrounded by [square brackets] to indicate this is the transcriber's best guess of what the source document says. Particularly difficult to read entries are followed by a question mark: e.g. Sm[ith]? John.
No surnames beginning with X were found in the source documents.
