Column headings for Schedule II of 1851 New Brunswick Census

See also

In the transcription of Schedule II of Andover Parish, I have put numbers at the tops of columns due to space constraints.  If you put the cursor over those numbers, a popup box will appear with the column description.  Below is the list of column descriptions, with the numbers I use in this transcription.  Wording is from the original census form.

As mentioned elsewhere, Schedule II was meant to gather this information for each township or parish. Adam Beveridge, the census taker for Andover Parish, mistakenly gathered it for each household.  Thus the first column, entitled "Name and description of Parish or City, or District in such Parish or City, and within what County" includes instead the name of the head of household.
