Census 1920Census Records of 1900 and 1920

These census records of Brentwood provide a glimpse of a sleepy rural community on the verge of change. Among the farmers, servants and laborers are sprinkled residents with occupations that speak of the modern era - an elevator boy and a chemical salesman, for example. Although it was an unincorporated village, Brentwood served as a social center for the surrounding farms and plantations, and had a growing business community.


1900 census

The Brentwood Library is pleased to invite you to use online the 1900 census records of Williamson County’s 15th District (Brentwood).

These records were transcribed by Jim Prange of Brentwood, who generously contributed his files for use on the library web site.

Some of the names in the original census records are difficult to read, and thus errors are likely to be present in the transcribed records below. In addition, the names handwritten in the original records are sometimes spelled differently from generally accepted usage today.

Thank you for your interest in this project and in our library!


1920 Census

This transcription shows all the residents of the 15th Civil District of Williamson County, the area commonly considered Brentwood. However, part of Brentwood's business district will be listed in Davidson County. The population included 527 whites and 308 persons identified as black or mulatto.

The Friends of the Brentwood Library graciously provided funds for the transcription of the 1920 records.

Many of the names in the original census records are almost illegible, and thus errors are likely to be present in the transcribed records below. In addition, the names handwritten in the original records sometimes are spelled differently from generally accepted usage today.

Thank you for your interest in this project and in our library!
