Florida’s First Families: Translated Abstracts of Pre-1821 Spanish Censuses, Volume 1. Donna Rachal Mills. Paperback, (1992), 2011, 6x9, index, 214 pp.
The translated and abstracted censuses presented in this work begin with 1786—the first year following the final British removal—and end with 1814, by which time the Anglo population was once again on the increase. None are complete: portions have been lost or destroyed; military personnel were omitted; and in some cases, families inhabiting outlying regions were originally missed or passed over. The following censuses are covered: the 1786 census of St. Augustine and its perimeter; the 1787 census of householders in East Florida; the 1793 census of St. Augustine and North River; the 1813 census of St. Augustine, St. John’s and Fernandina; and the 1814 census outside St. Augustine. Three appendices offer readers: a table of abbreviations, a table of name conversions, and a table of untranslated terms. A full name index completes this work.
