The tables on the attached pages are exact transcriptions
- including spelling, capitalization, ditto marks and dashes - from the
1871 census of Saint Patrick Parish in Charlotte County, New Brunswick,
Canada. The transcription was made from National Archives of Canada microfilm
reel C-10375. The page headings are exact, except that underlining has
been used to indicate text that was written in by hand by the enumerator.
The column headings and numbering are exact where given. I have omitted
some of the heading text to preserve space. The original text was:
|3: Dwelling houses in construction.
4: Dwelling houses uninhabited.
5: Dwelling houses inhabited.
10: Born within last twelve months.
15: Married or widowed.
|16: Married within last twelve months.
23: Dates of Operations and Remarks.
The first two columns were 1: "Vessels.", and 2: "Shanties." There were only two entries in these for the whole parish so I have omitted the columns and added comments. Columns 17 to 22 dealt with education and health. I have not yet transcribed them. The final blank column was inserted for future use.
Among other things, Column 23 had notes showing that the census was enumerated between April 3 and April 27.
Overall, the original document was clearly written and easy to read. Spellings, of course, vary wildly and I have not used "sic" except in unusual cases. It was difficult to distinguish capital I's from J's, K's from H's, and B's from R's. When these letters started a name, it was usually clear from context which was which, but when they were initials it was often not possible to tell.
Note that in the process of converting from my original
spreadsheet transcription to a text file to HTML, some (but not all) spaces
mysteriously disappeared, so if you see words strung together, that's what
happened. I have tried to correct these errors.
