Records of the Bay of Quinte

1793 ASSESSMENT ACT
The assessment act directed the assessors of each township to annually do a census and assessment. These continued till 1850 and most records have not survived. Below are transcriptions on this web site of some of the surviving census records and also links to other sites that have some. The Newcastle District had a great record of survival for these records. There is much yet that can be transcribed.  Here is a good map of the Districts.
