Abstract This document is a compilation of free black entries in the federal censuses for Prince George's County, Maryland from 1790 to 1860. It was prepared by The Ottery Group, Inc., as part of a contract with The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, Prince George's County Planning Department, to document the history of antebellum plantations. Entries from each census year have been tabulated; each table is unique to a particular census year. The purpose of this document is to assist researchers focusing on the historically small, but significant, free black population in the county. If used in combination with other primary historical records such as maps, land records, tax records, etc., these tables represent a useful tool for genealogical and historical research, as well as for locating the physical remnants of the lives of the free blacks across the landscape of Prince George's County in the pre-civil war era.
