1820 Census of Shediac area
(from microfilm F859, PANB)

(Thanks are expressed to Shirley Coneen Olfert who pointed out that there seemed to be a discrepancy with the data on this census and the year to which it was attributed. This census was also transcribed and printed in Generations, vol. 5, Aug 1980, and attributed to 1803 as well. However, Ms. Olfert pointed out that Richard Hodgson married only in 1807, and didn't emigrate to Shediac until 1819. In checking further, I compared the Melanson families below with Stephen A. White's "La Genealogie des Trente-Sept Familles Hotesses des Retrouvailles", in "La Societe Historique Acadianne", vol. 25 no. 2-3. From the number of children in each family, it is clear that this census is from 1820, not from 1803. My apologies for any confusion over this issue).
