Colonial, Territorial, and District Censuses

  • 1878
  • 1867
  • 1803

The District of Columbia was created from Prince George's, and Montgomery counties in Maryland, and Fairfax County in Virginia in 1790. Apparently, no censuses are available from Maryland or Virginia in those counties prior to 1790 in what is now the District of Columbia.

The District of Columbia has district censuses for 1803, 1807, 1818, 1867, and 1878,which are at the Maryland State Archives. There are also police censuses for 1885 to 1919, which list heads of households[Clan Boyd]
