By Windsor Historical Society

At the time of this federal census there were 3,000 people living in Windsor, CT. Our goal was to identify not only those who were prominent property owners or descendants of the old founding families, but the women and children, farm laborers, mill workers, and recent immigrants.

Researcher Elaine Brophy examined a variety of period sources in the collections of the Society and in other area repositories. She has tried to ascertain those aspects of each individual’s demographic information which would have been on the census forms: age, race, birthplace, occupation, and family members. The work will be of enduring value to genealogists, local history aficionados, and social historians interested in immigration and labor patterns.

They Lived in Windsor is comprised of a Master Census List, four supporting tables, and a searchable CD. Each entry indicates where that name was found in the documentary sources.
