Censuses (Padrones) of Revilla 1780, 1791, 1804, 1819, 1825
This book contains the church censuses (Padrones) for Revilla (Guerrero Viejo) for the years 1780, 1791, 1804, 1818, and 1825. These years were chosen by purpose since they are the most legible and complete years. Almost all the other years are either missing or are out of order and incomplete.
If your ancestors are from Revilla, (Guerrero Viejo) you will find this book to be very useful. Out of the above mentioned years our favorite one is the 1791 census since the priest wrote it in a different format than the rest and it includes the occupations of the head of household. We find shoe makers, black smiths, and the most common one of rancher among many other occupations. It also indicates the persons racial designation thus providing us more clues as to weather our ancestors may have had been native american or had black ancestry. It also provides a great example of the diversity of the households when it comes to extended families living in the same household.
