Summary: Manuscript census, in Spanish, dated November 6, 1791 and signed by Carlos de Morant. There is no reference to this census in the acts and deliberations of the Cabildo. The record is arranged by street of residence of the enumerated individuals, apparently the heads of households. In addition to the named individuals, each entry also records the numbers of other members of the household by category as follows: white men, white women, free men of mixed blood, free women of mixed blood, free negro men, free negro women, male slaves of mixed blood, female slaves of mixed blood, negro male slaves, and negro female slaves. Within each of these categories the numbers are further broken down into age groups. Also recorded is the occupation of each white head of household, the number of members of the militia resident in each household, and the total number of persons living in each. The various statistics are cumulated for each street and a final total for the city is given at the end of the volume. Page one of the record, said to include residents of Front Street and of a portion of Bienville Street, is missing.
