CENSUS

 

Note regarding the 1790 U.S. Census of Vermont - Vermont joined the Union in March, 1791, so its 1790 census was actually taken in 1791. At that time, Vermont consisted of 7 counties. Present-day counties were later formed from all or portions of these seven counties.

  The 1790 Census of Chittenden County - (includes towns which later became part of the counties of Franklin, Chittenden, Lamoille and portions of Orleans, Washington and Addison Counties)

  The 1790 U. S. Census of Orange County, Vermont included towns which were soon to become part of Caledonia County when it was formed, in 1792, from Orange County, (includes towns which came to be within the counties of Caledonia, Essex, Orange, Orleans and Washington)
