SOME EARLY SETTLERS
 The census of 1851 

In 1851, the government of New Brunswick undertook the first "official" census of the colony. We have listed the inhabitants of the village of Colebrooke ( Grand Falls ) as they appear on microfilm at the provincial archives of New Brunswick 
An earlyer "unofficial" census had been taken by John G. Dean and Edward Kavanaugh in the spring and summer of 1831 on behalf of the State of Maine which was laying claim to the area during the border dispûte. This census covered both sides of the Saint-John river on the north side of Grand Falls, approximately from the present limit of the town of Grand Falls to Connors, in Northwestern Madawaska county and from Hamlin, Maine, ( other side of the river) to The Fort Kent area of northern Maine. 
 

PREMIERS HABITANTS
Le recensement de 1851

En 1851, le gouvernment du Nouveau-Brunswick entreprenait le premier recensement "officiel" de la colonie. Nous avons énuméré les habitants du village ( à l'époque ) de colebrooke ( Grand-Sault) tels qu'ils apparaissent sur microfiche aux archives provinciales du Nouveau-Brunswick.
Un recensement informel des habitants des deux côtés de la rivière Saint-Jean à l'ouest de Grand Sault avait été entrepris en 1831 par Messieurs John G. Deane et Edward Kavanaugh pour le compte de l'État du Maine lors de la dispute des  frontières. Ce document démontre les habitants "squatters" qui s'étaeint établits entre les limites actuelles de la ville de Grand-Sault et Connors, à l'extrême nord-ouest du Madawaska, d'un côté et de Hamlin, Maine, jusqu'à Fort Kent, de l'autre côté
