In 1775, the Continental Congress passed a resolution to tax the united colonies by quota based on their population. Maryland took this census in 1776. The enumerations are available for the following counties: Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Caroline, Dorchester, Frederick, Harford, Prince George’s, Queen Anne’s, and Talbot. Not all of the hundreds within each county are still available. Some of the counties only contain names of heads of households; others contain names and ages of other inhabitants. I will provide a digital image of the relevant page from this 1776 census.
