The 1875 Valuation Books provide information about property owners in two major sections.

Pages 1-28 (as numbered at the top left corner of a page) were Scarborough residents and are arranged generally alphabetically by surname. That is to say all people whose surname begins with a “C” are together.

In the second section are non-residents who owned property in Scarborough. These pages are unnumbered and are divided by the towns the individual lived in and then semi-alphabetically by surname. The towns include:

  • Buxton
  • Cape Elizabeth
  • Deering
  • Gorham
  • Portland
  • Saco
  • Westbrook
  • Miscellaneous

A third, unnumbered, section indicates residents and non-residents that live in Scarborough but do not own property.
