[*] Titles: “The last column notes the date the settler arrived in New Brunswick. The usual entry is ‘Birth’. If there is a date, say ‘1842’, then under the ‘Racial Origin’ column would appear English, Irish, etc., meaning that the person came from England or Ireland in 1842. If ‘Birth’ is written in the ‘Date of Entering’ column and ‘English’ appears under ‘Racial Origin’, this means that while the inhabitant was born in New Brunswick, his ancestors came from England. This is an example of an inconsistency committed by different enumerators.” Quoted from notes on the microfiche.
