1810 census was begun on 6 August 1810 with
the count originally due within nine months,
but extended by law to ten months. The
questions asked by the enumerator were: Name
of family head; number of free white males
and females in age categories: 0 to 10, 10 to
16, 16 to 26, 26 to 45, 45 and older; number
of other free persons except Indians not
taxed; number of slaves; and town or district
and county of residence.
Note from Patti: Nottingham
Township was the ninth of the original
townships organized July 15, 1781. It was
then bounded on the north by Peters township,
on the east by the Monongahela River, on the
south by Fallowfield township, and on the
west by Strabane township. It is drained by
Peters Creek on the north, Mingo and Little
Mingo Creeks on the south, and its boundary
lines were reduced three times when portions
were annexed to form neighboring townships.
The first reduction was in 1792 by Strabane,
the next in 1834 by Carroll Township and the
last in 1836 by Union Township.
