Source: National Archives of Canada microfilm #C-728, 1842 Census of Lower Canada, County of Deux-Montagnes, Parish of Gore and Wentworth, sheets 1226-1232. Also on LDS Family History Library microfilm #1375934.

Background: The microfilm quality is good and almost all of the entries are clear. This census was enumerated by three Gore residents: William Henderson, James Stephenson and Samuel Smith. Their statement as to the accuracy of the return was sworn before Thomas Barron, JP, on 14 May 1842.
NB: Please be aware that on Sheet 1226, the enumerator appears to have transposed a line at some point, as the numbers in the column under "Total in family" do not correspond to the cumulative numbers given in the "Nativity" column.

Index: Gore and Wentworth were enumerated as one district and no attempt has been made to separate them in this index, therefore it is quite lengthy.

Index information includes: line number, name, occupation, total persons in family, nativity (IRL=Ireland, SCT=Scotland, CB=Canada of British origin, CF=Canada of French origin), number of years in the province if not native, and under what tenure land is held by each family.

Items which could not be transcribed with certainty are indicated by the use of square brackets [ ] and question marks. Spellings are preserved as they appear in the original.
