This is the 1833 New Brunswick Special Census of Madawaska, Carleton County.


Note: Madawaska's population was made up mostly of French-speakers. The census taker was a native English speaker who was not familiar with the spelling of French names. In the annotations, or in the remarks (in parentheses), I have noted the actual spelling for those individuals for whom I have specific information. Please see also Information on French names in the 1833 New Brunswick Census of Madawaska.
