1841 Census of St. John Island

The following is a list of landowners from the 1841 Census of St. John Island. These are not head-of-households, but only a list of those who owned acerage (plantations) on St. John at the time of the census. Ownership of a plantation on St. John does not necessarily mean the person was also living on St. John. If there is a “?” after the name, it means that the handwritting was difficult for me to read, and I was unsure of the spelling of the name.
