1848 Census: North Crosby, Leeds, Ontario, Canada

Extracted from the 1848 Census, Canada West (Ontario), Johnstown District, Leeds County, North Crosby Township. 1

This census lists only the head of family/household by name.

But: if you’re researching your North Crosby ancestors, there is an awful lot of information to be gleaned from this census return, if you’re willing to deal with the seemingly endless rows and columns.

How many members of the household of the named head of family belonged to the Church of England (Anglican), the Church of Rome (Roman Catholic), the Church of Scotland (Presbyterian), the Free Presbyterian Church of Canada, etc? How many were natives of England, Scotland, Ireland, Canada French, Canada British, Germany and Holland, the United States? How many neat cattle, horses, sheep, hogs did your ancestor own? How many pounds of maple sugar had he and his household produced in the past year? How many pounds of wool? How many pounds of butter? How many acres of land had your ancestor put under tillage by 1848 (you may be shocked and surprised by the low number: it took years and years of back-breaking work to clear the land for agricultural purposes).

It’s all there in the 1848 census, if you’re willing to go through those seemingly endless rows and columns. A digitized copy of this census is available, online and free of charge, at FamilySearch. For the township of North Crosby, Leeds Co., go to images 497-538.

Note: There are many South Armagh surnames here. See more Forkill records.
