1819 Census of Loughborough/Portland Townships


The original census is available from three sources:

  • Public Archives of Canada: (Original document) It was found as an attachment to a land petition of Michael Sloote, Petition S13/42 and signed by Thos. Raile, Town Clerk for the year 1819.
  • The Ontario Register, Volume III, 1819 Census of Loughborough, Frontenac County, (available at the Public Archives of Canada and major libraries in Canada)
  • Family Tree Maker's Family Archives Genealogical Records: The Ontario Register, 1780s-1870s, CD # 204
While most of settlers listed were from Loughborough Township, some were also from Portland Township which is to the west. The Spike family for example are listed and they lived in Portland Township at the site of the village of Harrowsmith, (known as Spike's Corners before being named Harrowsmith). The document is titled "A return of the inhabitants of the Township of Loughborough and Portland". Most of the names in the document are still common in the area.

The document listed inhabitants in three categories, Males 16 to 60, Males under 16, and Females. Relative family groups can be determined by the position in each group. This method works up to a point but on the attempt, it seems a logging camp or barn raising was listed throwing the family grouping out about 2/3 of the way through.

Please find below a transcription of the original list. Spelling of the names have changed over the years and in the case of many, they could not read nor write so often left it up to the clerk/minister of the time to phonetically spell their own name. For this reason the last name Keller is spelled "Celler", Lyons is spelled "Loyns", etc.
