Comments

This document is undated, but the date was determined by comparing district names and statistics with returns known to be for the 1805 tax year.

 

At the time the transcription of Captain Swan’s undated return was prepared, it was estimated as circa 1805-1809. The following document verifies that Swan’s return is for the 1805 year.

 

Although Captain Wilkinson’s and Captain Williamson’s returns carry an 1806 date, that date is when their lists were submitted. The lists, however, apply to the 1805 tax year according to the following document.

 

This document also identifies three companies for which returns have not been located: Beal’s, Rosdell’s, and Black’s.

 

Individuals listed near the end of the document were late in giving in their taxable property, with the exception of Abraham Davenport and Jesse Featherston Sr. whose returns were misplaced by the recording Justice of the Peace Robert Alexander.

 

On the reverse of this paper is a record of 1805 Delinquent Taxpayers, which I have transcribed separately.
