Introduction:

The "Map of Caledonia County, Vermont From Actual Surveys under the direction of H. F. Walling" was created about 1858.  Since the process of compiling the information for a map of this nature takes some time, it is likely that land was bought and sold, and people relocated during the course of the project.  It is, therefore, possible that someone who recently moved to the area may not have been included, while names of others who had already relocated away from the area still appear.

Due to the age, condition, and typeset style, many names are difficult to decipher.  When names or letters within names were NOT able to be discerned with a reasonable degree of confidence, they are placed within brackets [ ].

The names which appear on this map are listed below, in alphabetical order by surname, followed by the name of the town/township in which they appear, then, the name of the village within the town when the name was associated with a specific village.  Following the town and village names, the structure or business which may have been associated with the name is identified when applicable.

The interpretation of the following listing is included as an example:
     Listing:
           CHAMBERLAIN, Miss :  Peacham, Peacham Corner
     Interpretation:
           Miss CHAMBERLIN is reported, on the 1858 map, with the listings for the village of Peacham Corner, which is within the town/township of Peacham, Caledonia County, Vermont.

When the same name appears more than once on the map, it has been listed as many times as it occurred.  No attempt has been made to determine whether the same person was actually listed more than once, or whether there were people who simply shared the same name.  It is believed that in some cases, these may be explained by the existence of fathers and sons who share the same name.

Following the list of names which appear, there are listings of the Businesses and Natural Features reported, within the Town of Sheffield and it's Villages, on the 1858 Map of Caledonia County, Vermont.

Statistics:  A population of 797 is reported for Sheffield on this 1858 map.
                There are 172 names which appear in Sheffield and its villages, and these are listed below.  It remains possible that a small number of names were not included due to the condition of the map and/or readability.
