Nelson Historical Society Journal, Volume 1, Issue 6, March 1964

1849 Census

1849 Census

Recent acquisitions of the Historical Society were spoken of by Mr. J. A. Jenkins. They included a list of the original settlers in 1842; a copy of a Nelson census compiled in 1849 which included every man, woman and child; and a copy of Captain Arthur Wakefield's journal. The Society already had a photostat copy of the latter, Mr. Jenkins said, but it was difficult to read the handwriting. The copy made reference work much easier.
