Originally published Department of Commence & Labor Bureau of the Census, Govt. Printing Office, 1908, 189 pp, index. This is a reproduction on CD and is searchable.
The 1790 Virginia census was destroyed when DC was burnt during the war of 1812. For a replacement the government compiled information from the 1782, 1783, 1784 & 1785 state enumerations. These enumerations covered only half the state so the 1790 census of Virginia is not complete. The information given varies by county. For examples see the scan on the right.
The following counties are covered in the CD: Albemarle, Amelia, Amherst, Charlotte, Cumberland, Essex, Fairfax, Fluvanna,Glouchester, Greenbier, Greensvile, Halifax, Hampshire, Hanover, Harrison, Isle of Wight, Lancaster, Mecklenburg, Middlesex, Mongogalia, Nansemond, New Kent, Norfolk, Northumberland, Orange, Pittsylvania, Powhatan, Princess Anne, Richmond, City of Richmond, Rockingham, Shenadoah, Stafford, Surry, Sussex, Warwick, City of Williamsburg. For some the the counties there are enumerations for more than one year.
