    Text The Fourth Federal Census of 1820 states the name of the head of household only, with columns for ennumerating members of the household by sex, age, and race; it uses one additional age category (free white males between 16 and 18) as had been used for the 1810 Census, introduces basic analysis of occupational types, and includes sex and age categories for slaves, as follows:

    A: Free White Males under 10 yrs
    B: Free White Males 10-15
    C: Free White Males 16-17
    D: Free White Males 18-26
    E: Free White Males 27-45
    F: Free White Males 45+
    G: Free White Females under 10 yrs
    H: Free White Females 11-16
    I: Free White Females 16-26
    J: Free White Females 27-45
    K: Free White Females 45+
    L: Foreign (not naturalised)
    M: Total - Agriculture
    N: Total - Commerce
    O: Total - Manufacture
    P: Male Slave to 14 yrs
    Q: Male Slave 15-26 yrs
    R: Male Slave 27-45 yrs
    S: Male Slave 45+ yrs
    T: Female Slave to 14 yrs

    Household of William Darwin

    A: ♂ 0-9B: ♂ 10-15C: ♂ 16-17D: ♂ 18-26E: ♂ 27-45F: ♂ 45+G: ♀ 0-10H: ♀ 11-16I: ♀ 17-26J: ♀ 27-45K: ♀ 45+

    William Darwin's entry presents an anomaly in that one of his known sons does not appear counted in the household. The above return expands as:

    [A]: William Powell Darwin, 8
    [B]: John Powell Darwin, 10
    [E]: William Darwin, 34
    [G]: Jane Darwin, 6
    [G]: Nancy Darwin, 4
    [G]: Amelia Darwin, 2
    [J]: Elizabeth (Powell) Darwin, 29

    Apparent absence here of Thomas Franklin Darwin strongly suggests he died in early infancy.

    The Census return for the family also shows 3 individuals are engaged in agriculture, and two male slaves aged between 14 and 26.
