1663 Proprietors

The 1663 list of proprietors in Bermuda (including non-resident English proprietors) was published in Lefroy's Memorials of the Discovery and Early Settlement of the Bermudas or Somers Islands, 1515-1687 (1879): Vol. 2:718-731. Digital version at Internet Archive - free.

1696 Association Oath Rolls

Not technically a census, the 1696 Association Oath Rolls serve as a census substitute. The original records are found in class C 213 at the National Archives, Kew, England.[1] Gandy published abstracts of oath takers living in British plantations, including Bermudas [sic]:

  • Gandy, Wallace. The Association Oath Rolls of the British Plantations [New York, Virginia, Etc.] A.D. 1696. London: the author, 1922. Digital version at Internet Archive; reprint: FHL Collection 970 F2L 1995. [Bermudas [sic] entries begin on page 48.]
