This was Maryland's Colonial Census, From
1. Maryland Records; Colonial, Revolutionary, County and Church, from Original Sources, Vol. 1, Gaius M. Brumbaugh (1915).
2. Maryland Records; Colonial, Revolutionary, County and Church, from Original Sources, Vol. 2, Gaius M. Brumbaugh (1928).
*** Note: Neither of these sources is complete.
3. Ancestry.com's database Maryland Colonial Census, 1776 (available for subscribers of their U.S. Records Collection).

Brumbaugh's volumes cover only portions of some Hundreds, but it's value is that many of them are microfilm copies and transcriptions showing the order of the families/plantations (Nantacoake is shown alphabetically, while Straits and Transquakin seem to be transcribed in dwelling order). The Hundreds of Dorchester County at this time were Nantacoake, Straits, Transquakin, Great Choptank, Fishing Creek, Little Choptank, Hermitage (Armitage) and Cambridge.

Ancestry.com's database has much to be desired as it is not "readable". The database is only searchable by name so one cannot "read" the census to learn, for example, what order the families/plantations were enumerated or what other family members are in the family. Notes column is my research notes.

Unfortunately, the famiy of Benjamin and Margere Moore are not identifield.

Rick's Notes
Moore, Christopher Dorchester; Transquakin

-

Males: 1 10-16, 1 40-50.
Females: 2 <10, 1 10-16, 1 16-21, 1 40-50.

See the Dorchester Births and Marriages page. I cannot see a match from them to any of these Dorchester families. Might Benjamin and Margere be a part of one of these households?

  Note: Ancestry.com's database does not show what Brumbaugh's volume makes clear: that the 3 previous entries are the same household. John Lee, age 21 and Sarah Dickson, age 11 are also in this household. This family is probably Benjamin Moore and Sarah LEE, daughter of John Seward Lee Sr. and Elizabeth WATTS.

  The next entries are from Brumbaugh but not included in the Ancestry.com database. They may be a legitimate portion of the Colonial Census or may be a local census instead.
