This census or return, as it is named, was included in a petition by Michael Sloot, of Loughborough in 1819. Thanks to Guylaine
trin for informing me about this petition and return. What is remarkable is that children and women are named as well as the adult men.

Source: Upper Canada Land Petitions, RG 1 L3, V 461, S 13/42, C-2813, on line at LAC, starts at image 1199. See page 42e for the start of the return.

The Return
Loughborough and Portland Townships are adjacent to each other and were in Frontenac County, north of Kingston. In 1998 they and two other townships were amalgamated to form South Frontenac Township.

The year of the return or census is dated by the Town Clerk as 1819. The return names males over 16, males under 16 and females. All names are written by the same hand and are quite legible. Names are transcribed as written. The tally showing 572 residents is recorded on the middle column of page 42f. For the females, many of the surnames in a list of those from the same family are written with just the first letter of the surname. The transcriber has concluded by the context that females over 16 have their whole surname written out and those under 16 have just the one letter designating their surname.

Michael Sloot was a Lieutenant in Lt Col Abraham Cuylers Corps. He was granted land in Adolphustown and settled there till 1807 when he moved to Loughborough. He leased a number of lots in Loughborough at the west end of Sydenham Lake and encouraged others to settle there with him. He built a saw and grist mill likely located at the west end of Lake Sydenham where the river drains out to the west. This return was probably included in the petition to show the growth in settlement in the area and to imply his role in its growth.

Sloot surrendered his 1000 acre grant of land in Richmond Township, Lennox County in 1817 because it was not good land for settling. After further petitioning, in 1820 he was granted 1000 acres in Albion Townhsip, Peel County, just south of Bolton. See this web page on Michael Sloot.
