The 1766 Census of Belgium

Province of Luxembourg

The 1766 Belgium census (‘Dénombrement’ ) of Wallonia, has been available to browse through at FamilySearch.org for some time, but going through all the towns on a long endless reel of film is a nightmare. Since Belgium was not a country until 1830, these images of towns were not organized under Provinces, but were found all lumped together under ‘decanat’ regions (hence this labor of love) which also included dwellings in Luxembourg, France and Germany (hence the nightmare). The 1766 collection includes the Provinces of Luxembourg, Namur, Liege and some Walloon Brabant (but not of Hainaut) with the names of villages, hamlets, estates, farmhouses, chateaux, religious houses and tiny obscure villages. I organized the Province of Luxembourg with links to view the villages,

As with France, and other countries, the Catholic parishes were the center of everything. (Sunny Morton wrote a very easy to understand article about the historical background of record keeping in Catholic France (and Belgium)) You will notice that I included the parish names with the villages that were associated with in 1766. As with all recorded documents, mistakes and oddities were made by the census takers. There are 2 towns with the same name in the same province but are attached to two different parishes. Villages in one province could be attached to parishes in another Province. One example is Saint Hubert in P/Luxembourg. The village is recorded as under the parish of Saint Gilles in P/Liege. Then, towns and dwelling places were filled with splitting headache spelling errors. Town names were altered, completely changed, or combined with another town to make a new one.

*Since Belgium was the epicenter of wars, means that some of the villages listed were destroyed or no longer exist.
