Wellfleet, Barnstable county, Massachusetts

1790 Census

Sorted alphabetically.

 The source is the 1908 compilation by the Census Bureau. The original spelling is idiosyncratic, and
I have organized the names by modern spelling. There were no slaves, so I have omitted that column.
This needs to be compared to the original records and to town records.
