1851 Census

General: 

  • Unfortunately, the 1851 census for the City of Kingston has not survived.
  • The census for the rest of Frontenac County can be searched online or in print (see below).
  • Note: Kingston in these links refers to Kingston Township, not the City of Kingston. For more information, see the Kingston Township page.
  • This census is sometimes called the 1852 Census, because it actually took place in January of 1852.
  • You can print a blank form for recording the results of your 1851 Census search from the FamilySearch website.
