British Columbia - New Westminster

The New Westminster census district comprised 3 sub-districts - New Westminster A, B, and C. 1891 census records for the district are found on two Library and Archives Canada microfilms: T-6290 and T-6291. Follow the links below to view Film Notes for the first two sub-divisions.

Note: The three sub-districts in New Westminster District (New Westminster A, B, and C) were further divided into numerous sub-divisions. The names of the sub-divisions are shown below. Note that the geographical areas corresponding to 2-A5 to 2-A11 are not clearly indicated in the census records. It is likely that they correspond to Matsqui, Chilliwack, Sumas, Langley, Surrey, and Delta/Ladner.
