Question: I am looking for early census records for Queens County, New Brunswick. I will be visiting NEHGS next week and want to know what I might expect to find for the communities of Chipman, Gagetown and Johnston, N.B.
Answer: The earliest Canadian Census that survive for this county date from 1861, the 1851 Census returns did not survive. There are returns for Chipman and Johnston starting in 1861. The community of Gagetown do not have surviving returns until 1871. We also have digitial copies of this from our subscription to Ancestry.com.
