The 1828 Census was to first to be held in New South Wales. It was taken by specially appointed collectors, generally responsible to a Commissioner or a Bench of Magistrates, who completed printed forms for each household in the territory allotted to them. A full listing of names given in the 1828 Census has been published.
The individual householder's form records district number, householder's name, residence, names of family and of servants and then for each individual person - age, class, ship, year of arrival, sentence, employment, residence, religion.
On the other side of the form there is a land and stock return which records district where situated, name of farm, name of proprietor or tenant, total number of acres, acres cleared, acres cultivated, and livestock (horses, horned cattle and sheep).
