SPARKS FAMILIES LISTED ON THE 1850 CENSUS

OF QUEEN ANNES COUNTY, MARYLAND

Copied by Paul E. Sparks


Editor's Note: As will be noted in the listing of Sparks households appearing on the 1800 and 1810 censuses of Maryland, an unusually large number of Sparkses lived in Queen Annes County. Dr. Paul E. Sparks has searched the microfilm of the 1850 census of Queen Annes County. While we know that many Sparkses migrated from this county to other parts of the United States during the early 1800's, there were still many there in 1850.

Dr. Sparks had copied information regarding the entire household of each family in which there was a person named Sparks, even though he may not have been part of the immediate family; he has also copied information regarding persons with names other than Sparks in households headed by a Sparks. The 1850 census did not provide information on the relationship of members within households.
Census-takers were instructed in 1850 to number consecutively each house and each family. Throughout the Queen Annes County census, however, the same number was used for both house and family; no attempt seems to have been made to distinguish between different families living in the same house. After each person's name appears the following; information: age, race, sex, occupation, value of real estate owned, and place of birth. It is interesting to note that every Sparks listed on this census had been born in Maryland.
In using census records for genealogical research, it must be remembered that the census-taker often made errors. He was not obligated to talk to each person whose name he recorded - - , whoever was home the day he called provided the answers to his questions. Ages were often estimated, although on occasion we can imagine the family bible being consulted to give the correct figure. Individual members of household:; were sometimes overlooked while sometimes the same person was listed in more than one household, especially if he were a hired hand working on a farm near his home. Even an entire family was sometimes copied twice or missed altogether.

PERSONS NAMED SPARKS

LISTED ON THE 1850 CENSUS OF MARYLAND


(Editor's Note: As will be noted in the listing of Sparks households appearing on the censuses of Maryland prior to 1850, an unusually large number of Sparkses lived in Maryland, especially Queen Anne's County, during the first half of the 19th century. Many of these families migrated to other states prior to and after the 1850 census was taken. Through the services of a professional record searcher, we believe we have located all persons named Sparks (including Spark and Sparkes) living in Maryland in 1850. This is a key census for genealogical research because, for the first time, a federal census listed every individual (except slaves) by name, along with an indication of that individual's sex, age, race, and place of birth. For the head of the household, and usually for males who were self-supporting, the occupation was also given. The value of real estate owned by an individual was also given. Unfortunately, no provision was made in the 1850 census for indicating the relationship of persons living in a household. The census-taker was instructed to number consecutively each house as well as each separate family living in that house, although these instructions were not always carried out. These numbers are transcribed here.
