The Slave population in the Parish of Hanover taken from the Triennial Returns Recorded in the Clerk of the Vestry's Office on the 28th day of June 1823 amounts to Twenty Two Thousand Nine Hundred and fifty four Slaves
Whilst the census is dated 1823, counting began in late 1822 and ages returned at that time will therefore appear to be 1 year in advance if 1823 is taken as a datum.
Names are spelled as in the original document. There may be variants, e.g McFarlane also appears as McFarlen; some names may also be spelled differently today. Doubtful letters or words are shown in italics.
