1850 Federal Census of Washington County, NC
Introduction and Instructions

Every effort has been made to transcribe this census as written. There may be some errors, but these will mostly be errors in interpretation of writing as opposed to errors of omission. There are some obvious errors made by the census taker in recording sex, for instance, but they have been transcribed exactly as written. If the age was less than one year, it was written as a fraction in twelfths. Here it has been transcribed in the number of months followed by the letter "M."

The census taker skipped 176 when numbering the families. The people listed on page 100 were not assigned a family number.

The census has been arranged in separate files for each page. There is also an every name index for the entire census that is arranged alphabetically.  Each person in the index is linked to their respective census page and line. Merely click on the person in the index and you will go to that person in the census.  When you are done looking at that page, click on your browser's BACK button to return to the index right where you left it. If you want to go to another page or a different area of the index, full navigational capability is located at the bottom of each page.

The data is arranged in columns as follows:

Cool Springs District consists of family numbers 384 through 481.
Lees Mill District consists of family numbers 1 through 101, 244 through 267 and 563 through 570.
Plymouth consists of family numbers 102 through 243, 552 through 562, 571 through 670 and page 100.
