apportionment of representatives from the several
States to Congress, and of direct taxes ; and to
effect a just apportionment the actual enumeration
was required to be made within three years after
the first meeting of Congress, and within every
subsequent term of ten years, in such manner as
they shall by law direct.

It has been ascertained that in 1741, the follow-
ing taxables were situated in the eastern division
of the county, then part of Philadelphia county:

Amity 70

AllamiTigle* 37

Colebrookdale 85

Douglass 58

Exeter 76

Maiden-creek 75

Manatawnyt Ill

Total 512

Estimated Population 2,500



The number of taxables in the various counties
of Pennsylvania in 1760 and 1770 are shown as
follows : X

The first census of Pennsylvania was taken on
Sept. 7, 1791 ; and within every ten years there-
after, the census has been regularly taken to the
present time. The result of each enumeration
is set forth in the following table. The figures
were taken from the Census Reports of the Unit-
ed States, published by order of Congress. The
blank spaces in the table opposite certain districts
indicate non-existence of those districts at the time
of enumeration.

Where large decrease of population in certain
districts for a succeeding census is observable, it
indicates reduction of the districts by the erection

of others. For instance, Alsace in 1850 had a pop-
ulation of 2,697; but in 1860 it had only 1,299.
The township of Muhlenberg was cut off in 1850
and erected into a separate district. Also, Windsor
in 1870 had 1,311, but in 1880 only 830. The
township was reduced in area by the extension of
the limits of the borough of Hamburg. This ex-
tension was made in 1871.

For convenience in making comparisons, the fol-
lowing statement is presented in order to show
when the districts with the blank spaces were
erected, and from which districts they were taken:
