Married Spaniards

The following is an exact copy of the data recorded for 1790, census for the jurisdiction of La Bahia del Espiritu Santo.  It is included on this site because many of the residents who had connections to Refugio County.  This information was originally published by The Institute of Texan Cultures and was prepared by Rena McWilliams as part of  the TXGenWeb Project for the personal use of family researchers only.  It is provided without cost, and commercial use of this copy of the original printed publication is strictly prohibited.

Note:  This census enumerates the Spaniards and the Indians separately, and it further breaks down the population by those who are married, widowers, widows and single.  For faster loading, different portions are on different pages.  Married Spaniards was the first division.  I copied the records as they were originally published.  If there are errors (other than typographical), then they exist in the original transcription.

"A research project was begun in 1971 by The Institute of Texan Cultures. The original intent of the research was to prepare a draft containing information on Blacks in Texas prior to 1836. The research was broken down into three categories: statistical, census, and general information (general manuscript series).

Since it was impractical to extract only the information concerning persons of Black origin, translation of the complete statistical and census reports of Spanish Texas was accomplished. This material includes demographic, statistical and qualitative data on many ethnic groups, and individual families can be traced for several generations. It also documents the existence of a large number of Blacks among the Spanish and Indian population in Texas long before the influx of Anglo Americans colonizers.

The general manuscript series, consisting in large part of translated summaries, documents the Black's experience in Texas. The translation of this series was not brought to completion. In 1973 the project ended after an evaluation of the work revealed that the intended scope had been surpassed and that the work had the potential for a scholarly publication.

In 1998 The Institute of Texan Cultures granted permission to The TXGenWeb Project to bring this very important collection of early Texas source material to the Internet where it will be freely available to researchers. If you have access to this 3 volume publication and would like to assist in bringing this work online please contact Trey Holt."
